New Commission!

So here she is!  My next commission.  Meet Jordyn.  We just decided on this picture..  I took her pictures last Friday and there were so many adorable photographs to choose from.  The last couple days were spent going back and forth between a couple of favorites. 
So my plan for this portrait is to paint her in a soft yellow dress like the picture below, and use her mouth from the lower picture as well.  I can't wait to get started on this little angel!!

Okay, so here it is!  It's all finished up and I already dropped it off at the framing store!  So I'll pick it up and take it to the fair tomorrow.  Is anyone else entering in the fair?  Or maybe you already did.  Tell me about your experience, I would love to hear about it!  I will try and post a picture of the framed portrait tomorrow. 

And please excuse the terrible quality of these photos.. My camera just hasn't worked the same since I threw it :)  A bee landed on it, and I freaked out.. haha.. Oops!

Olivia, WIP

Okay, this is the last update I am posting until it's complete.  There is still so much detail to finish up and add to her.  But she is finally starting to look like Olivia!

Olivia's New Portrait!

I started this new portrait of my youngest daughter Olivia last night.  I am trying to get it done and framed by Monday!  Do you think I can do it? :)  hahaha

Update on Sailboats..

I have layered in some water now.. I still have such a long way to go.  But before I do anything more to the water, the sailboats need to be finished.  So here we go!  I would really love to have this one wrapped up in a couple days..

Have a wonderful day everyone!

A little more smile :)

I changed up her mouth a bit to give her a bigger smile!  She glows now and she is finished.  I apologize for the slightly blurry picture.  My camera is not working quite the same since I threw it when a bee landed on it!  Oh, the things I do sometimes.. :-/

Have a great day!
