Well here she is. Here is Elouise and how I imagined her in color. As soon as I painted a rosey cheeked smile on her face I too had a smile of satisfaction and continued to let the paint and brushes reveal her sweetness. One of the  last thing's to paint was her dress and I love a good blue and red combination! Finally her bouquet of flower's and she was complete. I really enjoyed painting her, and will miss her when she goes to a new home but in the mean time I will admire her on my sideboard and paint another hopefully right away to keep her company. Xox

A painting I will go..

.. A painting I will go, high ho the merry oh, a painting I will go!!
Excited to be done sketching my newest inspiration. I absolutely adore lost, and forlorn old photos of people that I don't know but can look and just imagine how they felt in that moment of time. For instance, this lovely lady is in I imagine a park like setting in the 50's according to her hair and dress. The dress is sprinkled with maybe blue, pink, and yellow flowers , and she is holding a freshly cut bouquet that perhap's her sweetheart just gave her maybe taking the picture because he wanted a momento of his girl and her lovely smile at that very moment. 
Ahh, I know I am totally reading into it. But what I do know is someone once cared for this person enough to want to capture it, and that is something I appreciate and feel compelled to save and sometimes reinvent their forgotten face's with paint, brush and care. 
Have a wonderful week. Xo Dawn
