A New Painting

Last July my great nieces and nephew came over to swim.  Liam, Neve and Fiona. 
I loved this picture their Mom took of them in the goggles.  Kids love goggles, no matter how many times they come off in the water.  Every kid that came to the pool asked "do you have any goggles?"  So I picked some up at Big Lots...they were always a major hit. 

I decided to paint this picture for my niece Wendy...their Mother for Christmas.

Here I sketched it out, trying to especially get the tilt of Fionas head correct.  This wasn't tilted enough, but I knew what I had to do. 

Here is the finished product.  It was a big hit....she cried....I cried...I get emotional over happiness.  Oh, and the name of it is Goggly Eyes...I made the o into a g after I scanned the picture. 

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

We sure did, spending it with family, that's what it's all about, the birth of Jesus and his family!
