Inspired by History

The painting on the right is by Piero della Francesca. It is a portrait of a soldier and his wife done in 1474. I saw it in an art history book one day and thought it would be a riot to do a version of it using my toddler twins (lower right). I gave it to my wife for mothers day.

  1. Jeffrey,This is priceless! …great idea and so well rendered. Love that you put the little car on your son’s shirt…all the better. 😉 I just ‘found’ you after seeing your painting in the new “Art Collector” magazine……the little girl with palette. I think it’s called “The good apprentice.” I then googled you and came up with your web page and blog.You are so talented!….continued success to you .sincerely,Kay Crain
