This is a commission piece that I just finished for my good friend's mom. My friend was lucky enough to be blessed with two sets of fraternal twins. This is the youngest set. They are nineteen at the present. Extra special because they are good friends with my youngest son. The older set are girls and five years ahead. Anyway...these two have always been opposite in looks. John has olive skin and dark hair and Mary has curly, blonde hair. What I thought was funny about this picture was their stance is so similiar. Both standing so straight with their arms held out a bit. I am wondering if it was a little cold or whether they were so excited to be at the beach. They are great kids and I hope this will bring back some fun memories.
Painted this on an 11 x 14" linen canvas.
