Sven’s birthday present to Ben was a portrait to match the ones he made for Al & me. He blogged a little about the process today (and there are links to his entries on the other two portraits in that post). I’d wanted to blog about it myself but figured Sven might eventually post something, so there you go.

The only problem I have with the work is going to be figuring out how to get him to do them all again in a few years. We’re going to be moving in a few weeks and we’ve already talked about the exact right spot to put them. Whatever we decide is the best spot in the house is where they’re going.

    So glad the family’s enjoying the portraits!

    I’ll be happy to do updated versions in a couple of years if you want… At that point, starting a new series, maybe I can change the format a little — use some prefab panels and framing options to make things simpler. (But not less pretty.)

    Starting off using scrap wood committed me to a few decisions that I might not have otherwise made — had I recognized that of course a family needs everyone represented.
