24" x 18" oil on panel

I thought that Ivy looked cute in the outfit that 
she chose by herself (as only a three-year-old can). 
She was wearing this on the day of her 
birthday party. 

Simplifying the background and placing Ivy on 
an outdoor hopscotch seemed natural. It clearly 
made her the focal point of the painting.

Here's the image of Ivy that I used for a reference:

By editing our work we can create whatever we 
want in our paintings. Our references are merely ides 
that help us to catch the vision of what we 
want the viewer to see and feel.

We get to paint what we want!
