Baba 2, Watercolor Portraits

My second Baba. I took the inspiration for this Baba from a painting I did over a year ago as a commission. I posted the inspiration below. both are about  8 x 10 inches, watercolor.

Oh, and if you get a chance, have a look at these two up and coming artists.... yes, I am a proud mother!
They are still in high school... yes, I am a proud mom!

This is so precious! Very creative use of a past reference for a new masterpiece.

And yes you do have very talented sons. I'm following both of them now.

Ah! The same love for your Baba shines through here too. Its a great time for you to do this series. Your inspiration is in complete harmony with your emotions and it surfaces on canvas.

Keep painting!

Hello Maria, painting with as much soul could not
be because they are characters in our lives.
Congratulations also the talent of their children.
I await a visit on my blog.

The Babas are great. I especially like the one you posted a few days ago (looking over her shoulder). And your much talent for their age. Incredible. I can see why you are so proud.
