Children's Portraits


These are pictures I took from my husband's portfolio. I took the pictures outside to prevent glare but I still got them anyway and since it was so cold and windy, my camera lens was fogging! They did not come out the way I wanted them to... crooked and everything but ... brrrrrr!
These were commissioned by a family friend from Canada. They are brother and sister. Oil on canvas.



These two were also commissioned. Oil on canvas.

nance, your husband is really gifted and the subjects are all cuties. when i look at his paintings, i feel that there simply isn't room for any other thought - other than absorbing and appreciating the beauty of his works.

thanks,
nini

JMom said...

awesome portraits, nance! I love how they have that old fashioned, kind of faded look. Is there are term for that?

or is it your camera fogging up? ;) lol!

hi nance,

back naman ako, so tired talaga last weds. n thurs. na stress pa.

ang ganda ng portraits, mabuti nakuha mo ng clear n parang actual pics. kuha mo.

oo nga, rippchen-kotelett?...way of cooking that meat, parang sa atin,
nilagang baboy?....parang pork chop.

yon leberknoedel....made of liver yon n meat ng baboy...

mabili mo ito lahat sa butcher, ready made na, warm mo nalang or just put in your sauerkraut in the last minutes, para maging warm.

yon mga smoked or polish sausage, ok rin yon, or any meat na gusto mo, kahit na yon nilagang baboy-tyan sa bisaya....pakuloan mo lang with pepper, laurel? n salt, tapos na.....then with your sauerkraut....

diba ang sauerkraut pag matagalan or laging i-warm mo, mas lalong masarap?....hay ganoon ako, yon tira- lagi kong i-warm, lalong mapadami ang kain ko....wla ng diet-diet nga....lol

ay sorry, nahirapan akong mag-explain.....lol
bisaya dialect sana, madali i-explain....
sorry na sorry, kaya sabi TH daw ako...natatawa? daw akong mag-explain....grammatic ko daw, hindi maintindihan.....

sigi, maraming salamat sa always visit n comments ha?
i am really happy naintindihan mo ang grammatic at tagalog ko.

happy weekend to you n family.

Thanks again

ay oo nga pag meron kayong time, pics. mo ang logo ng ALDI sa plastic bags nila or any.

sabi ko sa co-workers ko na meron Aldi dyan,.....tawa sila, kasi Intn´l daw ang ALDI.....

you know, maka-save talaga sa Aldi or LIDL meron ba rin ito dyan....kasi price nila, cheaper kay sa ibang supermarkt or grocery.

until next time.......have a nice weekend

Nance said...

you're welcome,pepe. and thanks for visiting.

Nance said...

vk,
oo nga, mas masarap ang sauerkraut pag day old na, kasi yata lumabas na yong lasa.
huwag mag-alala sa grammar mo, ganyan din yong sister ko dyan sa germany, nahihirapang mag-english na dahil medyo nakalimutan na daw nya pero marunong syang magbasa at magsalita ng german. marunong ka na bang magsalita ng salita nila?

sige, kunan ko minsan ng pic ang aldi. wala pang lidl dito sa amin (NY) pero baka meron sa ibang parte ng U.S.

Ann said...

Hi Nance, may modern version yang mga pics mo dun sa blog ko.
