Baby Grace


A proud grandpa and grandma came in the gallery today and had a photograph of Baby Grace in grandpa's wallet. I begged. I scanned. I painted. I painted this oil on an 8"x10" acrylic-tinted panel. It's one of those super-slick surfaces that I sanded and primed with an acrylic medium tone. It was kind of hard to get a photo of it without glare, so I hope you can see through all the shine.

This is so sweet it makes my heart hurt a little bit. In a good way, though.

Oh, thank you, my friends. I had such a good time painting this little face. You know, I paint as much for you all, as for the people who buy my paintings. It means so much to know other artists will come by to see what I painted recently. So THANK YOU!
