Commissioned by this precious little girl’s mother, their portrait will be her daddy's Father's Day gift next month. I was given permission to enter it in an early spring show at the VAC in Punta Gorda, Florida, and received lots of positive feedback and a possible new commission! It has now been delivered and I’m eagerly awaiting the father’s reaction! What a joy painting this one! However, a red dress on a baby was more challenging than I had imagined it would be.
