This painting was done earlier this year and I must admit that I think it captures my little four year old granddaughter's sweetness and softness. She is a beautiful little girl (don't all grandmothers think that of their grandchildren?) and I'm please to report that when she first saw the painting she said, "Oh, Grammy, Mommy is going to love this.) That was all I really needed to declare it a success, but I will admit that I am very pleased with this one. This was conceived at a Mel Stabin workshop when he asked us to paint something out of the box from our usual fare and this is my first attempt at a portrait. I have posted this on Artcolony (I think), but had never posted here. Now I need to paint Henry (our 6 year old grandson) and Addison (our other granddaughter who is only 4 months old). Getting just the right reference photo is now at the top of my "to paint" list.
