8x8 Oil on Linen

This is a commission I finally finished up for a co-worker. I have to admit, this is Lila v.3 
as it took me several attempts to get to this one. She's a cutie!

Thanks for stopping by!

What an awesome portrait!

You can see the character and the spirit of this girl.
The eyes really bring this portrait alive.
Usually I look to see if the proportions and technical skills are good but not with this one. It's immediately

Nice to see you painting again. Love it.

gosh, Doug - thank you!
That's so nice to hear. Portraits aren't really my thing and I tend to stress over them (especially if they actually have to look like that person!)
Hope you're well!

You captured some spirit there...and that's what it's all about...lovely!

I really like this too! You seem to have captured the girl beneath the face!
