This is my Great Niece Kara walking on the beach in Hilton Head, SC. She was really having a good time, enjoying the sand and the breeze from the ocean in the late afternoon sun.

Lovely painting. Lovely little girl. She does look like she's enjoying herself.

Thanks Paz, I think she is--wish I had been there too.

What a great painting. She is such a cutie and I love her shadow beside her. Looks so much like she has no cares in the world walking along.
Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind comment.

Rhonda, I swear this looks like my little girl the first time I took her to the beach. And I have some relatives that live near the beach in Hilton Head! I adore this picture!

Hi Suzanne and Sandra,

This was fun to paint, but I did have a magnifying glass out to paint her face. Thanks for your comments!

Sweet Rhonda...
You are so T.A.L.E.N.T.E.D!
And a real inspiration to others!!
I LOVE all of your paintings...
But, the ones to do with young children... are always close to my heart.
They look so cute and innocent!
Oh, why do they have to grow older!?
By, the way... you asked if I shipped to U.S.A!
Yes I do... If there`s anything that you see in my blog and would like to inquire more... Please! Just let me know!
Keep up with the wonderful work that you are doing!

Thanks Debbie for your kind comments! I love to paint children, seems like just yesterday my sons were little but they're in their 20's now.

Hi Rhonda, Thanks so much for visiting my blog. WOW! your artwork is amazing. I would love to be able to paint. I especially like the sheep as I am surrounded by them where I live. The painting of Kara is beautiful. I think you must have read my comment about promoting websites, please dont think I dont agree with this, the comment was aimed at a particular blogger, and my comment would make sense if I could explain fully but it is too long winded to go into. Blogging is a great way to showcase your work, and there are certainly alot of talented people out there so absolutely use any advertising you can and good luck with your website. Im sure you will have plenty of clients, Take Care Mandy

I'm so glad you left a comment on my blog, Rhonda; otherwise, I might never have seen your fantastic paintings. You are VERY talented!
