Lila… a commission

IMAG2821-1
This is Lila, the only commission in April. I like it. She is a lovely little girl and I struggled to capture her sweet smile and the joy in her eyes. I always freeze up when a photo is in front of me and I feel some expectation of a commission. I’m not a portrait artist and I’m the one that needs to let it go. If someone commissions me, they know my style and aren’t expecting “perfection”. But I always pull my hair out on them. Either way, I’m happy with the finished painting, so I’m posting it here. THIS is a rare moment ๐Ÿ™‚
