I show my parents all the artwork that I do, partly for critique (make sure it looks like a pear for example) but mostly I show them for the selfishly fuzzy feeling I get when they send me their approval. When I emailed my dad "Family Portrait" along with a few others, he said "I like the Pear Family Portrait"... So I stole the name from him. We have a family of five: Mom, Dad, older bro, twin bro and me. I'm not sure who's who in the portrait, but man, we make a cute pear family! Next I will need a longer canvas to include our expanding family with spouses and baby D :)
Check out my ARTWORK portfolios for newly posted paintings that I just uploaded yesterday and today (especially in "Fruits of Nature" and "Surf's Up!")
