I love this one! The hand seems so vivid and lively somehow. Full of intensity. Oil is really a wonderfull medium and you are very skilled.
Also it really looks like hands of a group of people who love each other .

What was the occation to paint this?

I have struggled for years to do a portrait of my family and I m never quite pleased with my attempts. So I thought I would start with parts of us instead. Its was really fun and since we are all creative people our hands was a great place to start. Then showing our characters in the foot portrait was fun to do as well. Maybe one day I will do a good portrait of our faces. Also hands have always been special to me. It seems to be my strongest memory of my dad.
Thanx for asking:hug:
