Leigh Grin

This is a portrait of my delightful youngest sister Leigh. She actually liked it, and hung the original in her house!

Using acrylics, this painting is one of the first surreal pieces I've ever created. The funny thing is, it actually does kind of look like my sister--the impish, fun side of her.

Truly, I have been blessed with two of the most wonderful sisters in the entire world.

What wonderful colors, you are so talented.
I'm an only child so I've never known the joy of having a sister or a brother either!
Hope your day is delightful.

I love the style of this. And the colours are so vibrant. Your sister is lucky and so are you.

Hello Beth,
I sent an e-mail to you back in May but had to take a break from blogging to take care of my family and my husband!

I just started back today and would love for you to get in touch with me! I would love to do a feature story on my blog about your work! You have inspired me and I want to share that inspiration with others that I know haven't found you yet! I do believe that you are a messenger of God's word and a wonderful example of His mearcy & grace! He is using you to minister to His people!

I have several blogs--I can't remember which one you found me on!!
Please write when you can--send me word through my e-mail!

Warm Hugs,
Kym

I like this side of you, er, I suppose, of her. Striking bold colours. Indomitable spirit.

I see her grin! She's so fun and beautiful. You've done an awesome job of catching that special side of our sissie!
