Two finished commissions

The first is a portrait of the adorable Gabriel commissioned by his mother Rachel to capture him as a growing boy and pay tribute to the time they spent with Gabriel as a baby in Antigua, Guatemala while adopting him, before bringing him to the US. 
The second is a buoy from a very beautiful beach where Analisa's husband Eric's family had their  cozy beach house for many years and multiple generations. Kai is working on two additional paintings for Analisa and Eric which capture memories from this special place.
I had so much fun working on both of these, and I have a few more commissions which I am close to finishing up and will share soon.
