Sunshine and Butterflies


This is my entry for this week's Daily Paintworks: The Simplify Cute Challenge.  It is by no means representational of the precious little girl featured in Carol Marine's photograph, but it was an interesting challenge for me.

It is windy and cold here today.  And I am loving every minute of it!  I hope you're all having a great week!

Thank you, Page. I am thinking of painting this little girl again. It would be great practice for me, and she is such a sweet subject. :)

Hi there, Lisa! Thank you! Painting this little girl made me want to do more portrait studies. It was a lot of fun. :)
