Ella & the Cosmos



I've made lots of progress on this special piece. Bringing "still life" objects into portraits is something I have been wanting to do lately, and finishing at least one of these in time for the November show was a goal. "Ella & the Cosmos" will fulfill that goal, after a bit more work and a trip to the frame shop.

Thank you to my niece for posing, and for suggesting the flower tucked in her hair!

I don't know how you do it Liz! This piece is gorgeous. I love all of the different textures and patterns, and Ella's hands are exquisite! Can't wait to see it at your show in November.
