Savannah - N/A



I worked from a photograph today.  This is my friend's daughter.  Although I enjoyed the process, I didn't really capture all of Savannah's sparkle.  She is such a little doll.  And packed with personality.  I don't think that it will ever be possible for me to get all of that on canvas, but it is fun to try.

It is cool and rainy here this week, and I am loving every minute of it.  Looking forward to the weekend!  I hope you all have a great one!

What a beautiful portrait Darla! I don't know about the likeness as I don't know Savannah but you definitely captured a mood and made it a gorgeous painting!

It's a beautifully-done portrait, Darla; as Karen says, it really captures the mood of the subject.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend :)!

I agree with all the comments. I especially love the light catching the tendril of hair at the sife of her soft chheks.
