"MICHELLE BURNETT AS A BABY" - 5 x 16 oil on gessoed watercolor paper. Michelle must have been a beautiful baby -- you can't help thinking that when you see her as an adult. I happened upon this snapshot of her as a toddler and decided it was time for me to paint my first full figure child's portrait. I was going for a very loose "faded-photograph" (like the song) feeling. In person the colors are more golden and not this pale. I may paint each of you artists in your book unless you protest ahead of time. Feel free to email me a preferred photo if you wish.
