"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week in 2013."

Casper: Feeling sick in the bath.

Joining in with Jodi. Also on my Tumblr.


Poor little guy, I think he got a chill at the river yesterday. He has been very subdued and cuddly this morning. I really struggled this week with this project, I had a few paintings to choose from. I feel that I chose the most honest portrait, not the most aesthetically pleasing one and I'm okay with that!

  3. I like this one. I like the greens and blues and the way his expression shows us he's not feeling quite himself. Hope he gets better soon.

  4. I hope he feels better soon. My little boy got a headache and fever last night and it's always so hard seeing them suffer. (He's all better this morning though) The choices in chosing which portrait to use for the week are so interesting.

  5. Poor little man!
    You can tell from your portrait that he is feeling out of sorts...very honest indeed.

    I hope that he is feeling better soon...and in the meantime enjoy the cuddles!

  13. Your poor little boy, I hope he feels better soon. A nice soak in a warm bath always feels nice when you're feeling under the weather. I hope next week is a good one. xx
