"Family Guardian"-Giraffes

Family Guardian
8 x 10"
Oil on 1/8" thick gessoboard
  I love my giraffe family "portrait" painting, the father giraffe always watch out to protect the family, three of them make a beautiful sence in the picture at that moment. The flecks ( forgive me if it is not the right word) on their bodies are so tough, I tried hard to paint them like real and natural, it is the first time to paint, I love the challenge and will do more in the future when I have the chance.
  This painting represents the thanks and loves for hard work guys who taking care the family everyday--such as my hubby, since I become staying home mom, he becomes the breadwinner of our family. He goes to work before the sunrise, comes home after dark, works under pressures... I believe there are many of dads work just like that for their loving families all year long. It is time to enjoy the holidays, let's be grateful for them!
