portrait of the three-year old


Here's a painting I just did of the sweet, crazy little 3-year old in my life. I have a wall downstairs that I'd love to cover with painted portraits of our family members (if you've ever seen Lauren Child's great book, The Princess and the Pea, there are amazing little portraits on the wall throughout her illustrations. I don't think I can post a picture of that because of copyright(?)). Anyway, I used egg tempera paints, which are a lot like watercolor, and new for me. I think I still need to varnish it...

Lynne, I absolutely love it! I love the colors and the softness of the washes! You've done fabulous work! I also love the idea of a portrait wall!
