This is one of the more formal portraits I have been commissioned to paint. The children are posed in their grandmother's garden. The grounds were so beautiful that I couldn't help but take lots of photographs in several settings. These three children were so cooperative, and patient with me. After spending a little time with them, it was quite evident little sister was adored by her brothers - the center of their attention. So it was fitting that the final photograph selected for the portrait featured her front and center.
