Eliina and Henry 2008

This was the first painting that I did of my wife, back in 2008. I moved back to Chicago from Los Angeles a year before and I didn’t own any paint or brushes. I bought a set of Acrylics on Ebay and this was the first painting I did in years. Back then Eliina was just a girlfriend with her smelly dog. I’m now married to her, Henry was my son.  This is about 20″ x 16″ and is painted on watercolor paper.
