My Wife and Newborn Sons: Drawings and Paintings

Jacque Pregnant;
Oil Paint

At 2:30am on Friday my wife gave birth to our twin sons Jackson and Dayton!  The coming Sunday (today) we had scheduled doing a charcoal drawing to accurately render Jacque's massive growing belly.  Its purpose was to serve as a kind of relic to remind ourselves of this special time in our lives forever.  Instead, we missed our opportunity, but in exchange I was given the chance to paint my two wonderful little boys and Jacque with a shrinking belly.

Needless to say, I have a lot I'd like to express about this event... but instead of painstakingly putting it all into words, I'll let my art do the talking and share with all of you this extraordinary moment.
