a portrait

August 16 2013 003

i found this canvas on the sidewalk in front of someone’s house right next to some garbage

there was nothing wrong with it, someone just obviously didn’t like what was painted on it

canvases are not the cheapest things so i grabbed it

once home, i had Lily prime it with some white paint and a large brush

when the paint was dry, she got right to business

she chose a portrait this time

she is quite into faces these days and she is blowing my mind with her skills

she drew the face first with a pencil (just like her mama) and then she painted it

if you ask me, i say fantastic!

but then again, i am her mama

happy ARTsy wednesday!
