Thank you Kim...he is very, very current...as well he should be...this is one of those pieces, that for him, took on a life of it's own...one of my favorites...I'll pass on the compliment!

When I opened your site my first thought was wow...an amazing portrait!!!!

A talented young man...he must take after his mother...:0)

I always enjoy seeing what comes from other artists minds...some have such a unique perspective...which is what you want!!!

Cheers

Hey Marylou...I think that he got the image from a photo...but, he really put this one together quite well...glad that you think it's so coooooool!

Thank you Lilly...he has a good sense of color, tho, I think he's still being stretched w/ colors and mediums, like acrylic and oils that have nothing to do w/ the computer!


Heather, this really does look like him! He did a great job with this! He's been drawing, really drawing since he was in about 4th grade...some of the 'old' work is priceless..looking back! Thank you, yes, looks like the gene has been passed along!

Love this! Made me stop and look at it for a while. Love the expression, the colors, everything. Great job!

Amy Lilley Designs said...

Thank you Henson...I'm so glad that YOU, stopped and took notice...I'll let him know how you 'stopped' and looked for a while...GREAT!!!

Louie said...

Awesome piece of art! I'm a wannabe artist who also enjoy and appreciate the great work of others. :) Very cool!

Soulful...I'm drawn in by the eyes...
the eyes are just saying so much!!

Amy Lilley Designs said...

Hey Louie...AWESOME...great way to describe Edward's portrait...if you 'wannabe', then you must practice, practice, practice...all the best!!

Muse, he has the 'Lilley' eyes...I must send you a pic of Edward and his Dad when he was about 3...you'll see what I mean...yes, very soulful..
