"A man travels the world over in search of what he needs, and returns home to find it." George Moore
Having recently embarked on my own family portrait, I realize how important it is to keep it up to date. So many things have changed in all of our lives over the last several years. Our latest portrait is of myself, mom and dad and my four siblings... no extended families this time. I’m blessed to be able to say that we’re all still intact. Some of us have been through some stormy weather over the last years. Mom and dad are in their late eighties, and life seems so tenuous at times. It’s hard to all get together these days, as you know. But here we all were, in my sister’s back yard... TOGETHER. It was a beautiful fall day and we enjoyed being together. It’s one we’ll talk about for a long time.
I don’t know when, or if we’ll be able do this again... the seven of us, that is. But to say that this portrait is something I cherish, is most certainly an understatement.
"My family portrait is absolutely perfect. I have tears swelling. I can't believe how this experience has given me an added appreciation for the family that I have. It is so fun to have this captured in such a lovely piece of art. Thank you so much! " Stacey D. Hoffman Estates. IL
