Fairy Princess

I thought I would post a fun painting today.. A few years back I painted my Granddaughter sitting on a Moon.   My cousin always wanted her daughter painted as the Fairy Princess sitting on a Moon as well.  Of course, Samantha is not a child anymore...in fact, she's all grown up and a School teacher but her Mom still wanted this magical painting of her...I had so much
fun painting this pastel and hope you like it as well...
