"Cutie Pie"

acrylic on masonite
You can't fake a sunny personality (she's not at all camera shy). I envy people that can maintain their youthful characteristics through out their lives. Usually life has a way of tapping down the charisma you exuded as a child. I actually painting this image from black and white. I think painting "Aunt Tip " gave me the courage to try this one. I remember having great difficulty working like this in my previous attempts. I guess I've just gotten better at choosing color.

What a Cutie Pie indeed! This is precious. So much personality shows through. You did an excellent job...I never would have guessed it was done from a b/w reference!
