Teething Is Hard Work 4"x4" oil #212

I needed to do something different so I chose this portrait of my grandson. I love this little 4"x4" format. It is just so cute! I prefer non-smiling portraits because they look more natural, but it was difficult for me to find a photo that really showed his personality and a reasonable likeness. I associate his features with smiles, but when he is teething his cheeks get red and he gets this set-jaw look.
