Baby portrait ....Hayley

Yesterday I painted this while I sat at an art show (emphasis on "show"). It was supposed to be a demo but only a few people stopped to watch and whenever I looked up and said "hi", they would scatter.....because I'm so scary. lol

This is a painting of my now 13 year old daughter when she was around 8 months old. 7 x 5.
