Sweet Baby Xander

'Sweet Baby Xander' 
8" x 10" watercolor on paper
not for sale

Remember around Valentine's day when I had a contest where I was giving away an 8 x 10 painting to whoever submitted a 'smitten' photo that got the most votes? Well here is the finished painting of sweet baby Xander.

I love his little nose pressed against his binky and his chubby fist. Brings back so many memories to me (although my kids were never into pacifiers, not for lack of trying I tell you!). There is just nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby is there? 

Listening to: ZZ Ward 
Reading: Daughter of Smoke and Bone (for the second time)
Watching: Grimm
Snacking on: Salted caramel hot chocolate (it's chilly today!)  


  1. You have captured such sweetness. Beautiful work!

    1. Rien de plus attendrissant que cette belle oeuvre... Le calme règne ainsi que la douceur douillette...
      Il faut être une maman poule pour si bien capturer ce merveilleux moment.
      Gros bisous
