|Boy As Donkey|
I enjoyed painting this little fellow so much. It came about due to the generosity of a lovely woman in England. She has a vlog on YouTube called I Sew A Lot. And she does! Her latest post was over-the-top adorable and she ended it with a couple of still shots of her son wearing the donkey costume she'd made for his part in a nativity play. I fell deeply in love with the image and did something I never do... I commented on a video on YouTube. To BEG. I pleaded as nicely as I could for her permission to use her image as a reference for a painting. And today, I saw that she'd answered me!
She granted her permission and wanted to see it when I was done. So now I need to figure out how to get it to her. Maybe a link here? Anyway, how nice! Thank you for your generosity. Painting this made me happy.
And I had the company of some very kind artists while I painted. Thank you!!!
