The Perfect Shot!

The Perfect Shot
 9 x 12
Oil on Raymar Panel


Don't you just love lining up the perfect shot?  I loved seeing this father give his daughter a boost to get the picture.  I don't even remember what they were taking a picture of...but I do remember them laughing and teasing each other as they hoisted her up on his shoulders to make sure they lined up the perfect shot.  I remember thinking of how much fun they were having.  They thought they were taking a picture...but I knew they were making a memory.  A memory that will put smiles on their faces throughout the years.  

What memories have brought you smiles???  


  1. Your painting tells such a nice story - even without your narrative. Good one, Maria!

    Smiles come easy ..... so many great memories! But one that comes to mind is first meeting you almost one year ago ....... (BIG SMILE!)

  2. The perfect shot is right! love the story here along with the composition. You figures are so good!

  3. Oh that is so lovely Maria. :) What a wonderful memory to have. It makes me want to squeeze my boys right now.

  4. Charming and challenging Maria! Everyone can relate to this moment- nice!
