I finished this painting just before Christmas. Little Kings was commissioned by these two brother's mom. It was a cute story and dang cute little boys.
I often am asked if I ever paint boys. For one thing, I don't have any boys around, just lots of little girls. For another, most of my paintings are autobiographical in content, and there is no little boy side of me that I feel I need to represent. I took on this challenge before I was in the family way, now I am thinking about the possibility of having a little boy around and what could come of that. Hey, stranger things have happened.
