Children's portraits can have many twists. This past weekend my grandson, Clay, who is 7 almost 8, came by in his Halloween costume. He has had a very stong interest for the past year in the military, World War II in particular. So this year he is going to go to parties as a soldier. His interest has gone so far as to have him learn all the names of the planes, guns, etc. He amazes me in what he has leaarned. So back to portraits, it was fitting that I do his portrait in his costume. It is more than a costume to him and he really plays the role.This is my favorite portrait we did.
