This and That and Fancy That

is my favourite painting because it is my daughter
because it is my favourite painting of my son

Nancy and I were interviewed by the Associated Press this morning as part of a larger story about tree sweaters (our KnitKnot Tree) and knit graffiti sweeping across the country. Keep Your fingers crossed.

2 wonderful portraits Corrine...
the profile of your daughter reminds me of those beautiful cameo brooches...and I love the brooding melancholy in the portrait of your son... the bird sits so well on his shoulder too !!
I am in the process of putting a dog into my most recent portrait of my son...eek !
I love the way that we artists have the opportunity to portray our children on's simply the best feeling..and one that you can't buy :)

Bill Evertson said...

Love the kids portraits - Kim already mentioned the cameo nature of your daughter. Your son's portrait is haunting. I think I'll make a post of my son tonight. I'm not surprised sweater tree and knit graffiti are creating a stir. It's one of those genius leaps that if we are dedicated in our art make. Pollockthebollocks piece is wonderful.

Congrats on the AP interview -- Yay!

Jane Turley said...

Blimey, you look way, way too young to have children in their teens. Got some secret I should know about.
The one of your daughter is absolutely terrific and I think it is fantastic that she is capturd in canvas like this.... looks very serene (hope she's like that in reality!)

And your son ...well he reminds me of Craig David... does he like older women????
