Lin,
Wonderful! Isn't it much less intimidating and easier to sketch our grandchildren from the back? And the whole family recognizes them immediately.

Lin, this is so beautiful. It takes me right back to when I went berry picking with my father. I will send you a mail tomorrow to the mailadress you sent me!

What fun! And your painting is fantastic -- great depth with the foliage.

What a sweet sweet painting - you must have had so much fun with them. And what a great way to preserve the memory. I predict this will become a treasured family piece.

Lin - This painting is so calming. What a great day to teach the children to pick blackberries and to have this idyllic painting as a remembrance. You do such lovely work!

Kay Cox said...

Oh Lin, this is charming. How sweet! Our blackberries are long gone. So what is grandma going to do with those berries? Or do they even make it to the house?

Terri said...

Another beautiful memory captured so well. Gorgeous.

Gorgeous, Lin! They are so sweet.

Wow! I hope you frame this one and save it for them to love and cherish when they're grown. I'd love to have something like this from my childhood (though I do have a portrait my uncle painted of me at that age but it's kind of dour looking).
