Difficult works in progress

I have been working on these paintings for some time. The baby to the left is me! The other painting is of two of my babies! My adorable Andrea and our firstborn Lucas. The problem is that it is almost impossible to get them right and I am considering this a practice, have no idea what to do with the painting. Maybe hang it in our bedroom. When I am up close, working with this painting, it looks fine and my eyes well over with tears of thankfulness and love… and when I step away and look at the piece from at distance something looks wrong. Ah, well, I’ll just keep working on it.

This afternoon I took a break from painting, went downtown and had a long needed haircut and bought a cool t-shirt made by Santa Fe artist Frank Buffalo Hyde!
