Little People Portrait: Amy’s Family

8″x10″ acrylic, 2013. Amy first contacted me via etsy nearly a year ago, and we built up to the making of this Fisher-Price Little People family portrait via a slow-motion conversation. I’m actually glad it took us this long to get it going, because, by the time Amy sent me a current photo of her family, her little boy had grown from babyhood into a fully-formed toddler complete with lovely strawberry-blonde hair! This made it easy to choose the classic orange-bodied boy with wispy red hair and a sweet smile to stand for Amy’s son. I modified the standard yellow haired/blue bodied “mom” figure to have brown hair to match Amy’s, but her husband is well represented by the green-clad “dad” just as he is!
