Process shots by the lovely Joy Liu. I really had fun painting these (hence the experimentation in color) and they are special because these two beautiful babies have some pretty amazing parents, one of which was the doula for me and my sons mom when my little lion was born. Its hard to believe its been almost 9 years! Stella (7 yrs old?) is the older sibling , while Solomon (5 yrs) is the younger one. They come from “Island people” as their momma told me, Jamaican, Sicilian, and Irish i believe.
