Our family portrait

It's been a long time since I the last time I make some art for my home.  The last piece I made was for to celebrate the arrival of my boy to this world (that's a little more than a year ago!) and it was a small piece (5x7 inches).  I've had this large canvas for ages that used to be a painting I did many years ago that I repainted because It not longer matched my decoration, and being always so busy I didn't have time to do something else until now. I decided I never have extra time so I had to take some time to make it.

It's a portrait family that includes us and our home. 

Me and my husband are holding the house meaning that we're the ones who support it and keep it in one piece while holding our kids in a shape of a blue dog (my daughter's favorite color and animal) and a lion (my son's name in spanish starts with leon=lion and we often call him that).  We're standing in a patch of flowers, meaning that our family is thriving and full of life.

I think it matches our family and our decoration pretty well now.. what do you think?

It's gorgeous, of course!

And yes, it fits your colour scheme very well, too.

Can't wait until you have some new paintings for us to drool over!
