Picking Flowers, Acrylic on canvas, 9" x 12", 2012

As I said before, I have trouble with portraits. Usually, I can do kids pretty well, as long as I am working with watercolors, but today, I pulled out the acrylics at gave painting a portrait of my daughter a shot. My plan was to try something sort of abstract or expressionistic, but somehow this image wanted to be relatively realistic. It’s not quite as soft as I wanted it, but then again, she is getting bigger and isn’t all chubby and baby-faced any more.
