This little boy is from the commission by Mrs J Hosie. She had moved into a new home and wanted a family portrait as a centre piece for her living room. Mrs Hosie commissioned Amanda as she likes the illustrative book style illustrations Amanda creates. The image is part of the larger painting of Mrs Hosie’s two sons, herself and her husband sat in the open fields enjoying their time together on a picnic. The youngest son looks thoughtfully up into the tree at a cute little owl.
