I had a very happy and heartwarming moment with Ali, Mhairi, Alexandra and baby Lachlan yesterday. This comissioned work was a gift from wife to husband to mark a milestone birthday and to celebrate their 2 beautiful children.

The painting was done when Lachlan was only 9 days old! so it was a special moment to capture this growing family.

These moments are the most precious for me as an artist. Revealing my work and witnessing the happy reactions. It makes all of the hard effort worthwhile and I feel very lucky that this is my job!
