My cousin, Lynn, gave birth to her second son via c-section this afternoon. A few weeks ago, she asked me to be his godmother. Being that he was going to be my first godson, I wanted to paint him up something extra special for his room. Lynn loves turtles, and with all intentions of nick-naming him, X-man, she requested some sort of super hero turtle. This is the painting I made for her first son, Gennaro, when he was born.
This was done on an 9x12 canvas with acrylic paint. When it was all done and dry, I wrapped it up in some clear plastic wrap and completed the gift with some curled ribbon. I love painting like this, but don't get to do it very often. Hopefully this little guy likes it!
