6 x 6 oil on panel
Elsie has the rosiest cheeks! I think maybe she is cold but having too much fun to go inside! This is artist Cindy McDonough's young daughter. You can check out her blog and all her wonderful paintings by clicking her name. Cindy was another one of the many artists that did Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30. She does some amazing figures and portraits.
This was such a great photo! I was tempted to keep the snowman in because I really liked the shapes it created. But the panels are only 6 x 6 and I didn't want to cram too much in. So I cropped to the rosie face. This is the first knit hat I've painted... so simplifying that was interesting. I'm really learning a lot. My biggest challenge is still knowing when to stop an leave things alone.
