It’s a little-known secret that I’m a hobbyist painter. I crank out an acrylic painting (on canvas) about twice a year or so. I started about three years ago and have maybe 10 floating around my house. Sometimes I paint two in a row, as I did recently. Nothing to report on the homefront, so I thought I’d share one of my latest.
It’s painted from a photo of the boys sleeping in my bed – the photo was taken about three and a half years ago. This is actually my second effort. Further down you’ll see another version, painted about two years ago. Interesting to note the difference! I gave the original to my dad and have missed its presence ever since. So, instead of asking for it back I painted it again. (Have you ever taken a photo of a painting? Don’t fully trust the colours you see here…)
