day sixteen

hello there. whew! to say that today was a hard day is an understatement. job searching is tough- it's not for the weak ones, that's for sure!

i don't know what it is about children, but they're such an easy painting subject! let me just say that it is far different than what i painted in college. it is a bit easier for me to paint from photos, though.

this is adapted from a photo i took of a little girl on the beach in spain. on this specific painting, i didn't spend much time... and maybe it's a little apparent. i hope none of you are coming in here with super high expectations. if i'm going to be painting every day for a year, i've gotta have some much simpler ones, right? plus, i didn't really feel like painting tonight. i have a feeling this little girl will show up again in another painting. :)

8x10" acrylic on Bristol paper (SOLD)
