My Latest Painting

I’ve been drawing and painting as much as I can in my spare time, and I finally have a painting that I’m so excited about that I’m actually writing about it.

Em had a dance recital back in March of this year, where I took the following picture.


I loved the playfulness, the femininity and the graceful lines – Em even has her pinky raised.  I can’t remember what they were looking at and why the little girl  started clapping, but it still makes me smile

And this is the painting that I did.

I hope you like it too!

    Wow, that is amazing! I am in awe of your talent. I cannot even draw a good stick figure. ;)

    This will be a family heirloom, I’m sure.
