Merry Christmas! 2019

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone of you will enjoy today with your families and loved ones. 

This year I tried to hand make a lot of my gifts for a special touch. This consisted of baked goods, decorations, and some paintings. My favorite was the painting of my nephew that I gifted to his parents. The painting took a long time, but I finally got it to look like the sweet little baby he is. The trickiest part of the portrait was capturing his essence. My nephew is a happy little baby that giggles and giggles. I wanted the painting to show how happy he is. I love oil portraits because they bring to life something that photos can’t quite capture.

Did you make your own gifts? I would love to hear about it! Please comment below and tell me what you made. Also, next week I will continue on my flower series. Please come back to learn some more!

Merry Christmas!
