Meet Baby Addison
8 x 10 Oil on Canvas
This painting celebrates the arrival of a beautiful granddaughter for our good friends, Joyce and Mike, parents of mother, Jill. I tried to capture the joy reflected in Jill's eyes from the reference photo taken by the baby's dad. Little Addison was born just before Thanksgiving which seemed perfect timing to me! They live in New Jersey and this evening "Grammy Joyce" is flying north with this first portrait of her little angel! I enjoyed every brush stroke in this painting!
Yesterday I learned that one of two oil paintings accepted in the Fort Myers, Florida juried show, Feb Fest, has won an award! Yea & Yipee! The judge,
Greg Biolchini is a fabulous artist whose work I have long admired! It is a thrill being juried in and this award is indeed an honor! Feb Fest is at the Art League of Fort Myers Gallery, 1451 Monroe Street, and will hang through February 25th. I'm looking forward to the reception tomorrow evening!
