Portraits for a Fundraiser

Every year, my kid’s elementary school has a fundraiser and I paint little portraits to raise money for school. It’s 3 minute portraits at 5 dollars a portrait. Today I painted 40 of them in 4 hours. Here are some photos from the morning. Next to me is a sketchbook to sketch in during breaks between sessions.

    We’ve had kids’ sketches (my grandkids’) for the third year now! You are fantastic — capturing each child uniquely and in a quite good portrait so quickly, and establishing rapport with each child!

    • Thanks Frank, it’s fun for me, and I like hearing that people have several years of portraits at their homes. I’t especially fun to re-draw the same kids every year: this was year #5 of doing this and it’s amazing how much those kids have grown up!
