CARICATURE ~ 





 A portrait  that exaggerates or distorts the essence of a person, animal or object to create an easily identifiable visual likeness. 


This is a caricature of our 3 children that we received as a Christmas Gift this past year. From left to right it is youngest to oldest. We (hubby and I) absolutely love it!


The best part . . . this was not planned. Our 2 daughter's live near us. Our son lives about 130 miles away. Last Fall our oldest daughter's employer had a "Family Fun Day" at Six Flags Great America. Our 2 daughters, Granddaughter, and her friend all attended. The day was kind of cool and rainy, which occasionally kept some of the rides from running. While waiting for a rain shower to pass, our daughters decide to have a caricature done for our oldest daughter's home. When waiting in line our Granddaughter commented that she had seen her Uncle. Soon our son found the girls and they decided to have the caricature done for us. What a priceless gift!

How fabulous to have all three of them there to be caricatured at the same time. A fabulous gift you'll always love.
When my friend's daughter turned 5, my friend had my youngest brother and his friend, both art students at the time, attend the party to do caricatures of the guests. Unfortunately, they found all 5-year-old girls look pretty much the same except for their clothes and hair, but they asked about pets and toys, and included those in the sketches. The children were thrilled.
