dready family life

                      dready ’round the pool’ – 40×18 – original commission on canvas

this is ‘one’ of the longest running commission I’ve had on the books (notice the disclaimer because there are some that have yet to happen, deposits taken and still no photos) … first of all it took me ages to come up with the idea until an acquaintance of us both suggested the garden as a backdrop, but even then it was the pool rather than the garden itself, which is full of lovely trees which I left out, around which I decided to create the focus …

so, instead of starting in 5 months, this thing ran to 9 months or something and then, the family itself is very busy, children with needs and two big time jobs requiring time and energy … and so their own edits and comments and thoughts also took ages to happen.

but in the end we all love the fun of it … round the pool

the parents were both lovers of carnival and did/do road march every year, but also lovers of ascot (go figure) and so I depicted her doing an old soca move ‘riding di donkey’ while in her ascot outfit and his ascot top hat and him doing his ‘signature’ carnival dance move … the kids as well are in their natural habitats …

love …

family …
