Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Child Portrait, "The Redhead", 8x10x1.5, oil, NFS

I am very lucky to have a dear friend, who did a very nice thing for me.  To show my gratitude, I gifted her with this painting of her youngest granddaughter.

I was very intimidated by this gorgeous girl's ivory skin tones and her flaming copper red hair.  I must say, if you want to have fun.....paint a red headed child!

I believe I captured her vibrant personality and a good likeness, but only those who know her well can judge that.  Grandma did seem very pleased.

Thanks so much for viewing my blog today.
