Here is my initial sketch
This is my painting, and it seems that somewhere in the middle of the painting she decided to look elsewhere than straight ahead.

At least she isn’t googly eyed right?

One last note: And I have to say welcome back to my precious Little G who spent a confusing week away from his mama, papa and nana. My cautionary note for the week: If you’re thinking of taking a child away from his only source of security, please think of the child and not your own petty reasons for taking him. It took him quite a while to feel secure again that we weren’t going to leave him. I’m sure no one reading this blog would do that to a child but I had to say it. That’s all.
