"Bella " was painted with a mixed medium of acrylics, chalk paint and water colors.  This is inspired from a photo of my grand-niece.  You will see many portraits as I plan to do portraits of my grand-nieces and nephews and also some children of friends within the next few month.  I forgot to mention I have a huge family and so does my husband.
I also want to add this is the first time I have introduced chalk paint in my paintings.  I love the softness it brings.  It is like velvet.

"Cousins at the Keyboard"

This was inspired by a photo of a couple of my grand nieces.  It was painted in acrylics. The photo captured a sweet moment of the two girls spending time together and having fun with music.

"Wrapped Around Her Little Finger"

This was painted in acrylics.  It was inspired from a photo of my nephew and his daughter. Sometimes I am taken by a photo and see it as a painting.  This was one of them.  Sometimes nothing has to be said when the image is so expressive.

"Girls in Paris"

This was painted in acrylics in a modern style.  My daughter-in-law Casey has a birthday coming up. My daughter Joy suggested I do a painting of one of Casey's favorite photos of her Mom and sister when they were growing up in Paris.  I love doing paintings that mean something special to people.
