Late last week (luckily before succumbing to stomach flu) I finished the first project to be started and completed after the girls came into our lives! It was a nice feeling and I think it turned out well. While it was a small project for a friend, it was still challenging (especially considering how poorly my last painting turned out!) and very fun. The poem is Laura's, but the butterflies are mine, and now the entire thing is her niece's and will (hopefully) adorn her nursery. :)
Here are the sketches:
And here's the final. It looked especially good framed.
