"CELIA" 10170
This is a commissioned portrait for a friend who was over at my house and saw some of the portraits I did earlier this year of my family members.  I don't usually paint kids less than two years old, but when I saw Celia's photo, I KNEW it would make an excellent portrait.  She has such sparkle in those eyes.  And I loved doing that hair!

It was fun to do another portrait.  It's been good for me to NOT do any for a while... Please click here to see other portraits on my website.
