The Baby Walker and the Story Behind it.

The Baby Walker
mixed media on cradled board
8 x 10 inch

There is a gentleman who I see frequently in my neighborhood who is always with his grandbaby.  I am assuming he is a grandpa, but perhaps he is a dad or an uncle or just a friend to the sweet baby.  He is either carrying her, or pushing her in a stroller and often I hear him singing to her.  

My art studio windows face the front of our house and on a day not too long ago he passed by strolling the baby and singing to her.  His voice was so lovely.  One of these days, I will say hello and tell him that a painting inspired by him and that sweet baby girl is now hanging at Tessera Gallery.  :)

Happy weekend to you all.

  4. Thank you Morag. Trees can be a challenge sometimes. It's always tempting to paint them as if it's winter, but then the grass and colors would not makes sense. :)

    1. Hello Terri, thank you so much for you comment. Yesterday I saw the same man and baby and was amazed that the baby has the same round face and dark hair I painted. I did not think I had paid very close attention to detail, but I guess I did. I did not say anything though as he seemed occupied. One of these days though!
