The daughter of a friend of my son. I am commissioned to paint her, but one of the practice pieces turned out making her older. As anyone who has ever done portraits knows, besides getting a good likeness you also need to get the right age.
6 x 6 Oil on Raymar panel.


  1. Very sweet portrait. I have great respect for your ability to do portraits! I have very limited experience but I do know how critical tiny little details are. Hope you will show us the finished commission.:)

  2. A pretty name for a pretty little girl! This is a fantastic beginning,I would also love to see the finished piece!!

  3. Yes, portraits are difficult , takes so little to change the whole expression, but this is very pretty, a very sweet expression.
