Today I finished a pencil portrait of a baby girl - at about 4-6 months old. I enjoy doing these portraits, but what I really loved about this one is that it is to be a Christmas gift for the baby's grandmother. The fact that this sweet baby's face will create a lasting memory for the family, and perhaps be handed down to the girl when she is an adult is such a fantastic thought! You want to believe that it was special to work on this piece with that in mind. :-)

Because this is to be a surprise gift, I can't show you the entire portrait, so I thought I'd show you one little part. I'll post the full picture after the holidays.

By the way, have you ever noticed how little girl's sleepers have so much detail in the design???????
