Portrait Love!

Portraits are some of my favorite pieces of art. Each one tells a story and captures a moment in time. I am in awe of portrait artists because I think it is so incredibly hard to paint a face, not to mention paint it to resemble the right person. My aunt Vicki has been a painter for a very long time and has started doing portriats of her grand children. I jumped at her offer to work on a portrait of our 4 year olds. I think she did an incredible job. I love her use of color (all which will match my house- I know all the artists out there are cringing!). Thanks Aunt VIc, I love it!

Here is the image I gave her:

Where do you hang your portriats? And how should i frame it? Ideas please!
