Portrait of Susan

6x8

This is a small but prescious portrait commission that I've been working on. I spent several hours on her arm, trying to capture those cute rolls. I hope that her parents will cherish this for years to come.

Rhonda she is so adorable she looks just like a sweet little doll.
Her parents will be so happy you have just captured such a beautiful painting.

I think this is my favorite of all your work, Rhonda. I love the color harmony and composition--the dress "feels" like chiffon--it is so sweet.
Bravo!

Hi Suzanne,

I had my doubts about this one when I started it but was pleased with it finally. I hope they will love it!

Hi Faye,

Thanks so much, I played around with different combinations and finally decided on this, I'm working on another one now and hope to finish her today.
