"Lil' Dude" by Gwen Bell

5x8" oil on canvas panel nfs

This was painted from one of my favorite
photos of my son , Michael. He was about
2 1/2 and idolized his Grandpa who always
wore a hat and boots. He's 36 now but I
still see this sweet little boy when I look at him.


  1. This is so sweet and cute! Michael has such a great expression on his face! Love it!

  3. Gwen, I am so impressed with this wonderful painting...hope to see more figurative work from you, although I love your still life setups as well, Okay, maybe I just like all of your artwork!

    Sorry about the previous comment "delete"...left out a word and tried to correct it!

  4. Gwen, what a cutie. Love it. Makes me want to pull out some old photos of the kiddos and paint them in boots and hat.

  5. Wonderful painting and a fantastic way to remember and pay tribute to your Father. I have to agree with Kay, this makes me want to search through some old photos, too.
