Evan and Luke

My cousin dressed in a lion suit holding up his new baby. Something about this photo just made me want to try to paint it.

I didn’t really get the slightly crazed look on his face but close enough. Happy to have painted this last night and today. Although life is crazy it always feels good to paint.

    THAT is an epic double portrait – how could you not paint it? 🙂

    I agree. There is something compelling about this photo. And I see why you set right to painting. Oddly enough it made me think of fairy tales. Maybe it’s the lion man aspect of it plus the presentation of his lion baby? In any case I love your painting as illustration of this fairy tale I’ve just concocted and as a family portrait, it can’t be beat.

    I immediately thought “Halloween”–but the reality is so much better! great job on the faces. (K)

    They both have otherworldly expressions on their (furry) faces. Great portrait! I was just checking in because WP still doesn’t send me notifications from your blog. Sorry not to do it more often.
