This is a detail of a mini sketch from a new series I am beginning. Every winter I tuck myself away in my studio and birth something new for the year. It is joyfully challenging to include my favorite subjects; flower gardens and my daughter. Stay tuned... I'll be posting others soon.

Hi Tina,
Thank you for your nice comments. Sometimes I like showing details because I love how the paint mixes on the canvas. Also seeing the brush strokes are exciting to me!

Love the pink skintones and loose brushwork, Lisa! Can't wait to see more of these.

I thought of Charles W. Hawthorne and what he says about not painting every feature on a child wearing a hat that is shaded from the sun. Your painting is a beautiful example of what he was talking about.
