Jack, the Ring Guy is a 7x5 oil by Shirley Fachilla
Please meet Jack. He was my daughter’s ring bearer at her wedding and now her son for ever. He's in his ring bearer duds. The painting is one of twelve that I did as gifts for her wedding party. They were all small, and Jack’s was the only portrait. I think I captured his sweetness but didn’t manage to show his mischievous twinkle.
Doing twelve little paintings all in a row reminded me that small is hard! I learned that I liked doing roses and beer, wish I had planned and painted more autumn leaves, and discovered that though I love drinking champagne, I find it exceedingly hard to paint. Of course, I loved painting Jack and will love having him as my grandson even more.
