Ray of Sunshine Commission Painting for Mom and Daughter

A fun and challenging commission painting, “Ray of Sunshine” is an acrylic painting on 11″x14″ stretched canvas recently finished. Based on a photo of a mother’s daughter, this piece is a special one, capturing the essence of her little girl reading, in the sanctuary of golden light streaming in through a bedroom window. I actually had a really difficult time in the beginning stages of the piece, as well as in the proportions of the little girl’s features. She actually looks a tiny bit older in the painting than in the photo. Maybe it will work for her as she get’s older. Overall, I am quite happy with the finished piece, and Dee seemed to love it. In her words, “It speaks to my heart, thank you.”
