"BENJAMIN," 10135, daily painter portrait © Carol Nelson Fine Art





If this little cutie looks familiar, it's because I painted him as part of my 100 Portraits project earlier this year. When I posted his portrait on my blog back in April, a couple on the East coast purchased it.
Benjamin's family lives in New Mexico and they had not even turned on their computer yet. So I had to tell the first people that I would paint them another version of Benjamin because, to be fair, his family should have first dibs on the painting.
This painting is sold.

He's gorgeous! Funny that someone besides his family bought the first one. Glad his family gets this one:)

That was nice of you to offer a new version for the original family, Carol.

OK, I love your abstract work Carol and have been very caught up in it of late when suddenly I turned a corner and saw Benjamin. Oh, I miss your portraits! So much talent, so little time. Well done!
