I loved meeting this lovely child, she is as sweet as she is beautiful. In this painting, I wanted to capture her quiet, inquisitive nature and patient demeanor.

Last Friday's Open Studio at the Mountain Artists Guild...so here is what I wanted to work on during the session: using more paint, thicker paint, and gaining more variety in brushwork. I misjudged my composition thinking I'd have time to add more scarf and sweater to the right....I usually spend a lot of time before I even start, especially with a profile view, to place the head correctly. If were to frame this, I'd crop to fit on 18 x 14 stretchers.
