Isabella



This little graphite pencil portrait is a special one, in that it's the latest in a series that was begun over twenty years ago. I have a few precious clients whose collections of my work are like visual chronicles of their families' growth: in this case, pencil portraits of grandchildren. The snapshot below shows the drawings of Isabella's older cousins on the wall... some of whom are young adults now. Time really does fly.

What a beautiful portrait of a gorgeous girl. Looks like that gorgeousness runs in the family and straight into the artist's hands. Such lovely work, Liz.

I have been trying to find a pencil portrait artist in Maine. Do you do these for anyone?
