"Ava" 8x8 Oil on Canvas in Sepia, 2010, sold.

Ava is the granddaughter of a classmate of mine, Susanne Hill Davis. I chose this little girl to practice my small paintings with because she is super photogenic and she has striking eyes. This came from a photo that susanne had posted on facebook of her playing in the sand and I cropped it as a closeup. This was my first practice piece and I did it in about 4 hours. I am trying to get better at smaller paintings and forcing myself to paint faster.


  1. She is a beautiful little girl! You are so talented! Love you!
