The Paper Boy

Extra! Extra! Read All About It!! I finished "The Paper Boy"!! I had such a great time painting this painting! How can you not fall in love with this wonderful little boy. This painting is of my nephew, Jake. Jake is one of the great joys of my step mom Bev's life and she loves to have him over to visit her and my Dad. One of Jake's favorite things to do is to deliver the newspaper to Bev's friend and neighbour, Marie Booth. Marie took the photo I used for reference for this painting. It tugged at my heart the first time I saw it and knew I needed to paint it. Bev is always telling me the funniest stories about Jake; he is such a little character and such a sweetheart. He makes a great Paper Boy!
