Gweneth is a wonderful subject.

Just fun to be around.

Following her Grandma Lori's example, she likes all animals and is caring and warm.

Katie posted a group of pictures and I couldn't resist trying my hand at editing one of them to create a moment

I also painted this with grass, some shrubbery and a flower pot however in the end I liked the simple emphasis of the two of them.

Incidentally there is no blue in this palette. The eye 'reads' it as bluish because it is surrounded by warm yellows and reds.


  1. Gwen loves this painting, her little pose is so cute. Thanks for capturing her love for animals especially the cat at horseback riding.

  2. Thank you, I'm pleased that Gwen enjoyed it.
    I was happy with her face portrait, although the jeans and kitty came together well
