This portrait was commissioned by my sister in-law in 2003 based on photos she had taken at a family reunion in the summer of 2002. This is the third super sized portrait I have done. The large canvas offers the opportunity for more detail while also being more challenging just to manipulate. For this portrait I combined two photos of the kids each sitting in the same caned wicker swing chair. The wicker and the accompanying shadows turned out to be very complex and time consuming. Jennifer asked me initially if the wicker would be too hard and I naively said, 'Oh, they look like fun!' Little did I know that it would be enormously more time consuming than drawing the boys. I'm very happy with the final result though it was a long time in coming.
