Family Portrait

Kidoodle: Make a Silhouette Family Portrait


My new house has left me with vast wall space that needs to be filled. Inspired by a winemaker's family portrait, I welcomed a new project to my plate. Marco Pasanella, his wife Rebecca Robertson, and son Luca are all the subject of one piece of adorable artwork — a silhouette family portrait that they created. Read like a math equation, one parent plus another equals the child.

Excited to make one of my own, I got to work with my camera, a piece of black construction paper, a pair of delicate, but sharp scissors, a white background, and a frame. In a few short steps, I had the perfect wall hanging. Now I just have to wait on my next wee one to enter the brood and my family tree exhibit will be complete.
