New Oil Painting

I  recently started playing with oils again.  The idea for this painting just popped into my head.  I don't know why, but some people think it really happened.   My daughter was my willing model for this painting, and she wasn't actually stood up.  It's just something I made up for fun.

This is a beautiful painting. Your daughter has such a poignant look on her face and the lighting is wonderful.

Thanks, Nancy! I wish I'd had more time to photograph it and get the colors right before taking it to the gallery, but I was rushed. Anyway, you get the idea. :) Thanks for the nice comment. I'm glad you like the painting.
