Veith Children - Recent Portrait Commission

In the weeks approaching the holidays I had the pleasure of creating some charcoal portraits for the Veith family. Mrs. Veith requested to have portraits of the children created as a Christmas gift for her husband, a fantastic idea! Mrs. Veith sent over a file of reference photos to work from and I began to aquaint myself with the kids, all SEVEN of them! I had a blast working on the portraits and felt like I got to know each of the children; part of the magic of being an artist and working on portraits.

I was so excited for the family to receive the portraits! Working on projects like this really satisfies my artistic soul. Knowing that there is a great meaning behind the portraits, that they are special gifts, and will become pieces/parts of the family really moves me. Below are the individual portraits, enjoy.
