Shy glance


Hi,  Well here is another child .  I love the bright light on her blond hair and her braid.  This is in oil on a 8 X 10 canvas panel.  I ordered 10 gallery canvases that are 1 3/8" thick,   I thought I might paint children on those and they wouldn't have to be framed.  Somewhere someone will need to hang those, don't you  think, lol.   Maybe a daycare, hmmmm.  Have to work on that.  Have a great day!

Hi Barbara. You really have perfected the flesh tones and hair - beautiful! Do you work from Photos or are they purely in your imagination?

Your series is coming together so great, each with their own unique expression. Love the lastest especially the hair and wonderful braid.

Hi Barb,

This is a great little painting. I think you've captured this little
girl's spirit. Good luck with the gallery wrap. I had one gallery tell me they wouldn't accept it. I also tried the Ampersand Gesso boards with 2" profiles. They accepted those but I didn't like painting on them much. Good luck!

Hi Carol, Actually I have been working from small photos out of magazines. Cropping and changing things. Glad you like them.

Thank you Shelley, This one may be my favorite too. Might be because my daughter had long blond hair when she was little.
