Michael copyright 2013 by Vivian Cheung
This year I was able to spend my Thanksgiving week in Punta Gorda, Belize. There, I met twenty-eight of the most beautiful children ages 2 – 16. Most of them are called Walk-Abouts because they have no supervision at home. Our team of twelve were able to spend time with them, love them, and provide some children’s ministry. This portrait is of Michael, one of the quiet ones who love drumming and have the most beautiful eyes.
I was also able to do some quick three minute portraits for the kids to keep.

This Little Piggy copyright 2013 by Vivian Cheung
As a second entry for the Alameda County Fair, I created a portrait of my sister and her one-and-a-half-year-old daughter. Since my little niece loves to hug animals, I included an Alaskan racing pig because the little oinkers are so darn cute. Not only that, he is my painting’s ticket for eligibility for the fair. The white camellias represent perfected loveliness, which speaks for all three figures.

This is a portrait of my then 4-year-old niece Abigail; it still is one of my favorite paintings. Over the weekend, it was shown at the Spring Art Show sponsored by the Livermore Art Association.
