Jayden - portrait of my grandson

8 x 10
Oil on Raymar Panel

This is my grandson Jayden.  He is sitting in his easy chair reading a book and has his helicopter blanket next to him...lovingly called "copka."  I wanted to paint this for a lot of reasons, not the least of which was to practice figures.  I love the perspective on the head and the angels of the legs.  

I realized that I have been painting and had not kept one painting of Jayden for myself!!! So this one is mine!  I am sure I will be painting more portraits of Jayden among other relatives... but I wanted to make sure I have one of my grandchild hung in my home.  


  1. GReat idea to keep one for yourself.

  2. Very cute! He looks very focused and content in his chair. Good one!

  3. This is so sweet, Maria....and not an easy piece. I'm glad you're keeping this one for yourself.

  4. this is a great one to keep! Love the composition. You did an amazing job with it!

  5. Once in awhile we just 'can't' give away or sell a special one.
    I love how he is so very interested in the book ...


Yayyy!!! Thanks for commenting!
