6 Month Pictures

My baby girl is already almost 6 1/2 months old. How time flies. She sits up like a pro and has cut her first two teeth! She definitely takes after her dad, she is 27" long and in the 90th % for height, and weighing in at 18 lb. 3 oz. at the doctor last week puts her in the 85% for weight. I have a supermodel on my hands, and it seems I will be destined to be the munchkin of the family.

My dad's best friend David took these 4 generation pictures a few weeks ago.

Jessica took some 6 month pictures when she was here last week. For whatever reason my happy, giggly, smiley daughter turns impossible to please when her portrait is being taken. So there are few pictures where she is smiling. 

If you haven't noticed, my daughter always has her arms straight out. Those arms have got to be diesel.

Evie is just so darn cute.

New 24" x 30" Painting

The past few days I have been painting with most of my free time since I have been on vacation, or I suppose it has been a 'staycation' since I haven't gone anywhere. It is definitely a challenge to get things done when you have a 6 month old who wants lots of attention.

Here is my newest painting. I took pictures while I was working on this painting. I thought it may be interesting to see how the painting transforms into the finished work of art. I only wish photos could catch all the details. Ultimately I think my paintings look best when seen in person.

Fall landscape

I did this painting and it took me quite a while. It was definitely a little out of my comfort zone, since it is more obviously a landscape. It is something different than usual though and I think I like it.

It is a 20" x 20" canvas incase you were wondering.
