"Isn't She Lovely, Isn't She Wonderful"

Ingrid, 8 x 10  oil on board

This song came to mind while I was painting baby Ingrid.  The song Stevie Wonder wrote for his own daughter.

Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love

I always thought the last line was, "But isn't she lovely little daughter".  No daughter in it at all....go figure.
Of course, I mean the baby is lovely,  not the painting.  That needs work..  I changed her mouth some, because she looked a little unhappy. 

This is my friend's grandchild, and I can't wait to surprise her with it on Friday.  She wants to give it to her daughter for Christmas.  She's so sweet all snuggley in her lambie cap.  Isn't she?

what a gift you have diana, and what a gift to give, she is going to cherish it forever.

creating art is a beautiful thing. it's a select few who can capture in portraiture that beauty. i'm so glad to see people requesting your paintings, you will go far with this gift.
