This mother-daughter portrait was commissioned by an aunt as a gift and painted from photographs. I couldn't resist the bow and frilly dress in this pose. Capturing Susan's personality in her lovely dark eyes and rendering her beautiful teeth were the challenge!
What a joy it was to paint another young mother and her baby! Susan has now received the painting and I am told is thrilled with it! That makes me happy! And - in the meantime, there is still another commissioned mother-daughter portrait on the easel! Life is good!
