La Nina, 11x14 oil

The last art show I was in had spotty attendance, so sales were not very good. One really good thing came out of it, however. I was looking at photographer Bruce Norman's ( album and saw some pictures he took that, to me, were begging to be painted. This little girl was photographed on Bruce's trip to Peru. She is so adorable. It took me a long time to complete this painting, with all the shading on the face and the colorful hat. I hope I captured that sweet, innocent face.
