"Beautiful Dreamer"
16x20 inches
Oil on stretched canvas

I'd mentioned in previous posts that I was working on a portrait of my granddaughter, Dominique. I thought I'd completed it a couple of weeks ago but wasn't 100% comfortable. Last week I put it back on the easel and made a minor change. I'm very happy with it now. Initially, I'd wanted to paint her portrait in a hoodie. She looks fantastic-mysterious when she's wearing a hood. I took a few hooded pics and then she sat on her porch, reached over and picked a flower from one of the hanging baskets and placed it over her ear...I quickly took the photo and it was perfect. I still want to paint her in a hood...

She is beautiful, and you did a beautiful job - it is very hard to paint our loved ones, no?
