Brooklyn...portrait of a Great Grandchild

9 x 12
Oil on Raymar Panel

This adorable little one is named Brooklyn and that hand gently touching her chin is my Aunt Denise.  Brooklyn is her Great-Granddaughter.  I just love the young fresh pink complexion next to the ruddy skin of an oldster's hand.  My mom (Aunt Denise's sister) asked me to paint this as a surprise for my aunt...She is not on Facebook or my blog so I feel comfortable that the surprise is secure.  I will be mailing it out in about a week.  Soooo...if you run into my Aunt Denise...don't spoil the surprise!


  1. Maria, this is a wonderful gift!! Your aunt is going to love this!

  2. This is really sweet! She is really beautiful. What a great gift! She is going to LOVE it!

  3. She's gorgeous, Maria..they will love this!!!! I was going to name my daughter Brooklyn since she was born there but changed my mind...I regret the name!!!


Yayyy!!! Thanks for commenting!
