More painting

A while back I posted a photo of a painting that Janet did of my boys. Janet is the grandmother of Hailey and has a great blog that you should check out when you get a chance.

Well, I decided that I'm going to get Janet to do a few more paintings of the boys for Christmas gifts. This one is from a photo I took of them this summer when we went to Ontario to visit my husband's parents. This beach is just minutes from their house. And this painting will be their gift.

Janet always puts a small CP awareness ribbon in all her paintings now in honour of Hailey. In the first painting she did, she put the ribbon over Ben's heart. In this one, it's over Daniel's heart...because "she's sure that Daniel's love for his brother is great". And that made me cry.


  1. Oh, that is just plain lovely. Now quit making me cry, I just vowed to leave angst and pain behind! Maybe joyful tears don't count. . .

  2. Beautiful I love this!
    What a fantastic gift and the ribbon over the heart made me all weepy too.

    Ontario-that is where I grew up also.
