acrylic portrait of 3 cute kids

the end of last year i painted a commissioned portrait and i don't think i've shown you the finished product yet. you can click on it if you want to see it a little enlarged. it was painted with acrylics on a 9x12 canvas. the mom of these three kids told me how she received several gifts for a holiday but this portrait of her children (it was a present from her dad) was her favorite.
if you ever need a special present for somebody, a custom portrait is a great idea for a personal gift!

on my next painted one i would like to use a bigger canvas so i can get into the tiniest details even more, i think that would be a lot of fun!

what are some of the favorite gifts you've ever received?

The picture is very nice!
And my favorite presents are:
a little origami-paper with the following text on it "I love you Mamachen", which I recieved about 25 years ago and use as a bookmark these days and a sign that I hang up in my room with the text: "Liebe Mama, denke nicht daran, was du noch alles machen musst, sondern daran, was du schon getan hast!" (translation: Dear Mom, don't think about all the things you've still got to do, but about all those you've done already".
Sweet memories!!!!
