from a dad's view

Nothing like a Longneck – watercolor

This is one of three Wildlife mom and babe paintings that I will be doing for small notes and prints. I will be using various colors including greens, purples, reds and other colors to bring a little flair to each. These giraffes have purple, reds, orange and blues to make the spots and shading. I have a full schedule of shows and commissions, but I hope to maintain the blog the best that I can.

The parents and babe series came from the realization that my own children our becoming adults and how I miss them and the tender moments when they were little. They are still full of love, but are working, and going to college, so very little time to see us, but when they do, it’s truly a joy.  When my parents warned me that time flies by even faster when you get older and I didn’t think that was possible, but I realize now… it’s true!

  3. Very sweet moment, Ryan. I look forward to seeing the next ones. It is true that time rolls by faster as we get older. Sometimes I barely even know what day it is. And while I miss the babies, I really love the adults.
