Pics, pics, pics!!

It's been busy, busy around here so I'm trying to put more in each post since the posts are farther apart :-)

First, an update on my grandson, Colton. He's doing great! He weighs 5 1/2 lbs now and if all goes well he will be coming home in a couple of days. Yay! He is SO SWEET!!!! Just sitting there holding that precious new baby is one of the best feelings in the whole world. This grandma is smitten!

I'm posting photos. The first pic is of my son, Philip, the first time he was able to feed Colton. Until recently Colton was getting nourishment via an NG tube. He's now graduated to a bottle. The second pic is the first time I was able to hold Colton, and the third one is a close up of the world's sweetest baby (which is what every new grandma thinks).

I'm also posting some art pics. I completed a couple of commissions recently. The first one was a group of three outdoor yard signs that a neighbor had had for years. They had faded badly but she liked them so much she asked me to repaint them and restore their original colors. I've posted before and after pics. That was a fun little job!

The second commission is the portrait of the son of a very good friend.
















Enjoy your weekend!

Beautiful work, Teresa, and the pictures of your grandson are precious. I'm sure his parents (and you, too) will be so relieved to have him home from the hospital. I'm so happy that he's growing well.

That must be such great news for you all, to have him home and so thankful for all the hospital care. He looks so tiny.
Glad to see you have been painting and getting lots completed. I can see you are going to be painting a beautiful baby portrait soon. You must be feeling so happy to be a grandma, enjoy every moment.

You have been busy! I think the restorations are better than the originals were from what I can see! And the commission is super! But best of all the news about your grand baby is wonderful! isn't it amazing to hold the little bundle of joy ? Being a grandma is beyond anything I had imagined :) wish you wonderful times with him and and welcome home wishes for little Colton!
