This is one of 6 paintings commissioned by my dear client, Edgar, and his family. We have become friends and I am honored to have painted so many large wall portraits for him. These two children are Edgar’s goddaughters. I loved painting their cute poses and expressions and the eyelet in their white dresses. For the background, I googled the parks near their home in Louisiana to find trees that are native to the area.
“Hi Nomi, When we looked at the girls’ portrait we kept saying, “Oh My God,” over and over. I was speechless. Beautiful is all I can say, and breathtaking. It’s absolutely gorgeous. Our family and friends are thrilled with all of the children’s portraits. Your canvasses are our our most cherished possessions. It’s always great working with you!”
