Day 7 of my 100 days of painting. Some days I paint for hours and other days… for about 15 minutes. One thing this journey has taught me is that discipline and persistence pays off in one form or another. The painting above is of a young girl named Ariella. She asked me to paint her because I painted a picture of her sister, Shirel. I was more than happy to do it and I really do love the painting. My husband said there is too much “hair action” but I like it! When I paint someone I want to capture who they really are, I want their personality portrayed in my painting. Ariella is one of the most feminine people I know and she exudes this amazing confidence and light whenever she enters a room. I know that it will serve her well in life. Long hair represents femininity and I made her hair look like waves in a ocean. I know she enjoys the beach and her spirit reminds me of the beautiful ocean. Ariella’s beauty shines and so does her personality and that’s what I wanted to show the world. This is from my heart to yours. Love you Ari! You asked and here it is.
