"Emma"

Another sweet girl to paint!  This is on a small 4" x 4" canvas.  I've got several I'm working on this week.  Emma started out in acrylic, and I finished her in oils this morning.  The photograph picks up the weave of the canvas, but in life, it's not as severe as it looks here.


Sometimes I paint the sides a dark color so they "float" on the wall.  I wrapped the image just a bit on this one.
