#23 - "W" is for Walk

8" x 8"
Oil on Canvas
This is my husband and son taking a stroll in the park about 12 years ago. For many reasons, this image is very dear to me, but the one that stands out for this challenge is that my son is walking. Due to development delays, my son did not start walking until he was 2 1/2 years old, so you can imagine how excited I was when he finally took his first steps. At this point in my photo reference, he had only been walking for 6 months. I really enjoyed getting lost in this memory while painting, and didn't want to stop, but I must move on to the letter "X".


  1. You've created a wonderful reminder of that special time!

  2. This touched my heart, Maria. You truly captured the moment!

  3. Such a sweet painting and what a beautiful memory. Thank you for sharing...it conveys such a warm feeling. :)

  4. Thanks Maria for commenting on my blog which led me to take a look at yours. I've enjoyed paging through your lovely work.:)

  5. Wonderful piece Maria. Nothing like a fond memory to inspire great work.
