Eden is finished

This is Eden. She is painted on oil primed Belgian Linen. I just finished her and hope to deliver her to her mama soon. She is a beautiful child in a way that is unlike childhood- it has to do with her hair, her expression. She has quite a depth to her. I loved painting her. And I can't wait to see who she becomes.

Roger Jamison's work in my painting

I took the pitcher I have of Roger Jamison's and stuck some cherry blossoms in it and got to work. Had to take photos to finish from since these flowers won't last
