Here we have darling Ruby. Adorable, sweet, charming, huggy, spunky, quick, funny, smart Ruby. She’s my cousin Heidi’s little girl, Atti’s little sister. I painted this portrait from a photo my cousin sent me that was taken at a professional modeling shoot. They had lights on her and fans and her hair was blowing in the wind. It was a little hard to paint from such a perfect photo, I don’t know why. I look forward to FINALLY giving these two portraits to Heidi. They have been finished for a while and I have been enjoying their company in my art studio. I love all the little faces I have on the walls of my studio.
These two are intended to be framed together.
And here they are keeping me company where I paint. I’m working on a couple of new paintings (not pictured) that I’m excited to show you on Monday. I need to finish Winter Tree too, I see I put it on my easel.
