Portrait of Madeline

17 x 13 oil on canvas, nfs
This is my younger daughter. I painted her from a photo that gave her a bluish glow, which I really liked. This image has a lot of glare on the top so I may switch it out tomorrow for a better one. I have missed painting people on a larger canvas and with more color like this. Feels very satisfying.

Je pense que votre fille doit être heureuse d'avoir été croquée par sa maman... On sent beaucoup d'amour dans cette dernière...

Thank you Sherry so much for the kind words. I emailed Dana, Martine-Alison and Liz, as I generally respond that way to comments if I'm able. :-)
