Sunday Favorite Re-run

It's time again for Sunday Favorite Re-runs, a new Meme hosted by Chari over @ happytodesign It is so much fun to go back and re-run some of my favorite post.
This was posted Wednesday, January 7, 2009, it was one of my first post.....
This year I wanted to give my Children something special for Christmas. I have always loved to paint, doing people is one of my favorite things to do. But...I've never really done a person that I had to make look like someone special. So my year was filled with trail and error attempts to do these. Here is the final results....

Keifer and Marissa, Son of Ronnie and Daughter of Ronnie and Mindy Smith

Lance and Teresa Smith Wedding picture

Connor and Morgan Smith Son and Daughter of Chuck and Lori Smith
I have also done a couple more portraits and canvases of people.

  1. Wow, those are some beautiful rendition...

  2. My goodness are SO on top of it. I have only managed two posts this week and the rest of the time I have raced around visiting checking out my fellow bloggy buddies.. did great with those portrait drawings. :)
    I am not going to have a thing posted on Sunday...sigh..just not a single dingy dang thing! :(

  3. Those are really good, I like the style, very nice! Cindy

  4. You did a good job; you should be proud!

  5. Each one of these have turned out so well, what an inspiration you are to many. Love the finished one of Kiefer and Marissa. don't think I saw it done before. each one of these will be such treasured items to them for a lifetime.

  6. Happy Pink Satur-unday. I love your photos, how perfect for PS.

    Got a minute? Pour a cuppa, pull up a comfy chair and please stop by - I love company.


  7. Painting portraits is soooo difficult -- capturing someone's look requires lots of skill and talent --- and you clearly have done this very nicely! Lovely portraits, thanks for sharing!

  8. I would be so excited if I could paint like you do! Have a lovely Sunday!

  9. You have a gift, Molly. The picture of the brother/sister is such a good likeness! Thanks for sharing. sue

  10. Hi Molly...

    I'm so glad that you joined in with Sunday Favorites this week, my friend!

    What a fabulous post to reshare with all of us...of course, it's brand new to me! friend, you are such a gifted and talented artist! I just loved seeing all of these fabulous family portraits that you have done...they are really, really good!!! I bet your family was just elated to receive such personalized gifts...I know that I would have been!!!

    Years ago I did oil painting...I also really enjoyed doing portrait painting! But then life, work, etc. caused me to put it aside...seeing this post inspires me to get back to it!!! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful talents with us, my friend!

    Have a super Sunday!
    Chari you use oil or acrylics? Just curious!

  11. What treasures you have given your family. It is very hard to paint portraits. Good job.

  12. i remember this one from the first time you posted... you are so talented!
