Precious Moments

You know those moments when you take a photo and you just know you have to paint it? This is one of those moments.  This painting is of two very dear people in my life...my oldest brother and his wife. Every Saturday morning they go for their fun run (ten or so miles)(not so fun in my book). Next they jump on my brother's scooter to scoot over to their favorite bakery to indulge in their favorite bakery goods. Sounds counter productive, doesn't it? It really is just a chance for my brother to ride his favorite toy...he loves his scooter. The whole thing just cracks me up. So this is them, after their run on the way to the bakery. This is positively one of the precious moments that will forever be seared in my memory banks.
