This is the largest family I have ever portrayed. Seven members and 3 dogs. The third dog is only showing her tail on the bottom right. It is a new puppy the family got a day before I was to finish this piece. Colored pencil, chalk pastel and white acrylic on custom toned Rives BFK. Gotta let em know.
Max a.k.a Charles McPherson Aduston Rogers the 4th
Mandy a.k.a Amanda Elizabeth Hamel Rogers. She is also depicted reading in the painting behind her head. It is an original Frank Weston Benson who was an American impressionist. Mrs. Rogers is a descendant of this important figure in American art history.
