"Peanut" 9x12 Pastel on Fine Tooth Paper



ReagansBabyPastelFinal900

Our little Peanut.  Precious Granddaughter.  For my daughter's 32nd birthday in April, I started early painting this pastel of her daughter, Reagan, when she was a baby.  Having not worked in pastels in about 14 years, I knew it would be a challenge creating this portrait of my granddaughter. But, I was up for the challenge.

I looked through hundreds of pictures I have of Reagan, and came across this one when she was about 1 y/o.  Her profile was so precious and I thought it would make the perfect reference for my pastel painting.

I had a lot of fun working on this pastel portrait of my favorite baby girl in the whole world.  Next, I found a frame and shipped it off to Kim.

That's what I've been busy working on these last couple weeks.
