Half-Hour Portrait

I had to take this photo with my phone, so it’s a little grainy. (If anyone knows how to take a better photograph of artwork with an iphone, please let me know!) So, as a general rule, who do you think is best able to hold a little smile for half an hour? I think that I now have enough anecdotal evidence to state with confidence that pre-teen girls win this one by a mile.

I painted this little sweetie last weekend. She wasn’t quite convinced that it was ok for me to be be studying her so intently, but luckily for her, half an hour can only stretch on for so long. Look at those big brown eyes and stray curls—isn’t she cute?

Painting babies from life is sometimes a bit of a challenge. This portrait session required biscuits, stories, big sister, music, peanut butter cups, mom’s lap, not mom’s lap, and a little bit of free range. But it was fun, and I’m pleased with the result.

This little beauty is cousin to the last two boys I’ve posted. Can you see the resemblance in the eyes?
