I LOVE the amount of thought that Courtney put into her piece. She made it a labor of love, as you can tell her family is to her too! What a darling family! Look at those smiles! Don’t you want to SQUEEZE each one of them! Here is their entry:
|What are you family Members names, ages, color hair, color eyes, etc.? And, tell me a bit about their personality.
|Daddy- Andy: Brown hair, brown eyes, 34 yrs. FUN, caring, always up for anything and a great dad to our crazy kids! LOVES sports, especially LSU FOOTBALL, his kids and ME!
Works hard everyday and comes home to us and turns into “Daddy” the second he walks in the door. He’s AMAZING!
Me- Courtney, blonde hair, blue eyes, 35 yrs.(yikes! 1st time I had to write that number! can’t believe im that old! Make me look young!)
Molly- 4 1/2….Brown Straight Hair, Brown eyes. Calm, sweet, princess of the family, caregiver, artist, ballerina, gymnatist and loves to ride her bike and scooter. Shes the light of my life!
Nancy- 2years old! Enough said! Does everything you can imagine a typical 2 year old does!
Carter- 1 year old this week!! Light Brown Hair and Brown eyes.
|The 3 to 5 prominent colors I would like in my piece include (be specific—ie. “royal blue” rather than “blue”, or “light celery green” rather than “green”): *||
I’ll include more detail below as far as color goes.
You can also be creative. Im open!
The girls love them some PINK!!
|Is there a career path you would like to include in an illustration (ie: I illustrated the husband as a police for the Brown family portrait):||Not really.|
|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:|
|Well, I’ve come up with so many fun ideas, but when it came down to it I would really LOVE for you to illustrate our family in our natural state! And you can find us in our front yard most saturday or sunday afternoons as a family. Are you ready..? Ive got some details!
So here goes…..
I would us in front of our house.(Ill send pics)
Molly- The 5 year old.
Nancy- The 2 year old.
Ok, now my sweet little boy, Carter Heard!
Andy…..DaddyBear as he is affectionately called around here by his sweet little girls.
We have 2 golden retrievers too that normally grace us with their presence.
Oh, and maybe a pink soccer ball in the grass somwhere. Only if you have room. Not a big deal.
|Any other details you might be able to give me that would help ensure your enjoyment of the piece:||I would love to be able to see all family members eye colors.|
Courtney, I’m so glad you went with this concept! Courtney had a few ideas when she first applied for an illustration, and I love this one that she chose. I love to create pieces with the family house behind them. Even if it’s not going to be a forever house for the family, it captures them as they are now. I loved working in that detail for you Heard family!! And all your details!!
MUCH LOVE to you al!!
