My sister, Theresa Jeanne, is currently studying art education in college, and over the summer agreed to do several custom paintings for my childrens’ rooms. We were so excited about the results (as are the kids — okay, the 3 year old at least; the 8 month old just wants to eat hers) that when my son’s school, the Clara Barton Center for Children in Cabin John, MD, started looking for donations for their annual spring auction, I asked her if she would like to do a couple paintings to be auctioned off. She agreed, and here are the results!
If you would like to see some of her other work, check out her website: http://theresajeanne.weebly.com/ [Note, 4/16/10: website is now http://theresajeanne.com] You can contact her through the website (hers or mine) if you’re interested in commissioning your own painting! We can also work as a team — Theresa will create a unique portrait painting based on a portrait from our child or family photography session. Contact us for a quote.
- the trucks (my son’s request!) and the fairies are mine;
- the beach scene and the animals are for the auction;
- the siblings picture, painted on wood panels, is based on a photo I took of my own kids, but sadly belongs to my mother now
