Alexa

When I went to my friends Anniversary party last summer, his granddaughter Alexa was there.  She was so pretty and I asked her if I can take her photo.  After I finished her portrait, her Mom saw it and wanted to purchase it.. it's always such a compliment when someone likes your work!  SO now the portrait has a new home...

  3. Hola Hilda, estoy viendo tus retratos con mucho placer.
    Antes, quiero decirte de que me alegro mucho de que hayas superado tan bien lo de tu operación y ya se ve, que pintas mucho de nuevo y esto... es buena noticia!
    Shadia me gusta mucho y como refleja la pintura y sus ojos, debe ser muy dulce.
    Megan es muy hermosa y Alexa una magnífica pintura. No es extraño que su madre te la haya querido comprar.
    Un fuerte abrazo.

  4. I agree with carol, above - the skin is wonderful! Then I agree with Nelvia - the hair is "just super.' And all on my own...I admire the ear... they are not easy to look natural and yours sure is....amazing job, Hilda.
