Say Squeeze

 I struggled to finish this painting today. I had a hard time with Grandpa, and in the end, failed to capture the endearing look he bestows onto the cheery, content Grandma.  Still, I like the character of this painting.  I can always try again another time.  For my last trick, I will paint this lovely pair again, but standing up.  Yes, there will be another three piece suit involved. 


  1. This reminds me of my grandparents--not the faces, but the clothes and the pose and I think they even had wallpaper that resembled that background. My grandpa had those spectacles (his were even bigger with thick black frames) and my grandmother had that hair.

    1. Mary,

      I'd love to see a picture of your grandparents! The background is actually the tile in my bathroom
