Isabella


Here is my latest portrait of my little granddaughter, Isabella. She has the longest eyelashes imaginable. Her hair is really a "bird nest" here, but when she piles it up on her head...that's what it looks like to her Grammy. I painted this Friday and matted and swapped out a frame to give to my daughter for Mother's Day...she loved it. (What else could she tell her artist mother?)

  5. Thanks Arti, Katherine, Ann, and Sadami. The original photograph was taken standing in front of a huge perennial hibiscus bush and we were in really bright sunlight...hence the bright shadow sun areas. She originally had on a really dark little blouse with pink flowers, but I decided on this color palette. And yes, she is really a beautiful little girl IRL...thanks so much friends.
