Portrait artist paints Portrait of children sitting outside, oil painting

Untitled / 6×6 inches / oil on panel. This is a traditional portrait in that I wanted to capture these two beautiful kids and their comfortable connection at that moment. I’m really excited about how this painting turned out.

What should I name this painting? Right now it is “David’s Children” but there seems to be a narrative in this painting. Naming paintings is so hard!

The technical things I was working on were colors, values, brush strokes and edges, and getting the background into the right compromise between supportive and interesting.
