Katie's portrait is done

We received Katie's portrait from Xan a few days ago. Seeing the painting develop on a web page is one thing, but having the finished portrait in your hands and seeing it in its full glory is something entirely different...and so much better.

You can see in the animated GIF how the painting came to be.

Thanks to our friends who commissioned Xan to do this portrait of our beloved Katie, and to Xan for a wonderful painting that will be cherished forever.


  1. It just so captures her expression perfectly. I'm sure it brings a smile to your face every time you look at it.

  2. I enjoyed watching her process of the painting, too! She did one of Morgan a few years ago and I agree, seeing the finished painting in your hands is completely different than seeing the pictures of the process.

  3. That is gorgeous. It so captures her. What a lovely gift.
