This portrait oil painting commission of a little boy in a blue denim jean jacket brought back a lot of memories to me.
One of my favorite purchases for my son when he entered “little boy”hood was a jean jacket. It’s now folded safely in a drawer, but not before both my other son and daughter wore it. It will be true vintage apparel for a grandchild some day.
So, I was delighted to receive this portrait commission from a black and white photograph. The photograph may not have had colour but I could clearly picture what my own little tousled hair brunette in his jean jacket looked like after a day in the fresh country air.
