Twas the Season...
I had a couple of commissions to do for Christmas, this one was my favorite. A friend of mine asked me to paint a portrait of his 2 year old little girl to give as a gift. I could not help but smile the entire time I was painting, it brought me a lot of joy...and simultaneously a lot of stress. With any portrait I put a lot of pressure on myself to get the likeness, it is terrifying thinking that you are painting an image of an individual, in some cases someone you have never met, FOR someone who obviously knows them very well!
From what I have heard it was very well received, what a relief!
