"After the Graduation" in Progress


"After the Graduation," (in progress), 4 1/2" x 3 1/4", egg tempera on gessoed panel

This pretty little miss was in the audience at my niece's college graduation, this Spring, and apparently over two hours of calling names was too much for her, so here she is, after the graduation! I loved how ready for the party she looks except for the part about softly falling asleep.

I'll post another update on this when it is further along....

This is so precious, and something I see quite often with my young granchildren. They are like little energizer bunnies, but then when the battery runs down they will fall asleep anywhere, and in any postion - no matter how uncomfortable!

Mona, it's nice to see this work in progress. A lovely image, and I like the repetition of dots on dress and stroller.

Thanks everyone. Claire, I love that about children too! Altoon, I agree, the dots and color coordinations are fun to portray.
