I really do love illustrating a family in an interior setting like this. I feel like I get to do a bit of interior design when I do pieces like this. So that was definitely a fun part of creating this piece. But most definitely, the best part was staring at those darling boys. Looking at their body language with each other and with their parents. I can really tell they are a loving family. I can only imagine the fun they’ll have through the years being a house full of boys + mom! What adventures are coming!

|Tell me a brief summary of each member of your family (name, age, hair/eye color, personality). *|
-Brown Hair—Thinning Hair; ALWAYS wears a baseball cap of some sort
-Very easy-going, loves sports, loves his boys, very casual, likes being outdoorsNikki/Mom:
-All about being a mom, very casual/laid back style, organized and on top of things at most times, but a bit frazzled from chasing after 3 little boys,
|The 3 to 5 prominent colors I would like in my piece include:*||Very open on colors— we like natural colors—Dark Chocolate Brown, Rusty-Red, Tans/Browns, we do have touches of mustard yellow, greens, copper and light grey-blue in our house too|
|Tell me what you would like to see your family doing (would you like them just sitting all together posing, as if for a picture? Or would you like them to be doing something together). Please supply the most details here: *|
|I like the idea of a simple portrait setting—us just together, as a family, all cuddled up together on the couch/floor in the living room relaxing. (We have a dark, chocolate brown couch). We are a very busy family, running in a lot of different directions all the time and when we can all just be together and “chill” is what we appreciate the most. Family movie/tv time is one way we like to unwind and relax. Our house is very rustic/casual with the natural colors mentioned above. We also have 2 Golden Retrievers—Bentley and Ramsey—they both look like your textbook Golden Retriever (Bentley has a blue collar and Ramsey a red collar). By no means do they need to be included, but I thought I’d mention it if you need any sort of “filler”.|
Ah yes… I just loved illustrating one of those rare quiet moments! Thank you for the view into your lovely family Nikki! I truly enjoyed creating this piece!! I hope you love it too!!
