Another Christmas Surprise

Oil on Canvas

This Christmas surprise was done from the photo above.
There are a few changes, as you can see. One is the negative
space between the couple. I chose to eliminate it to 
avoid a possible distraction. I used a couple of different 
photos so the expressions are a bit different too.

I have been painting portraits from life for several years.
Hopefully I've learned a little bit.   :-)

Now that Christmas has passed and 
presents have been opened...
time to show what I have been up to lately.
This is one of the paintings finished in time to 
ship before the big day.
I'll try to post the other one soon.

Hope everyone had a nice Christmas!
Merry Christmas to all!
Several commission pieces taking 
a front row seat lately.
Will share after Christmas.

Keep the real meaning of Christmas
close to your heart.

"Therefore the Lord Himself shall 
give you a sign;
Behold, a virgin shall conceive,
and bear a Son,
and shall call His Name Immanuel
Isaiah 7:14
