"Girl with a Black Hat"

9 x 7"  oil/canvas panel


Some of you may have seen this little gal before and I had actually decided to keep her, but there seems to be some growing interest in my small portraits on the auction site. So, to buy me some time while I work on a larger piece, I have decided to list her again.
This beautiful young girl came to our place a few years ago to ride horses with my daughter. I was struck by the maturity that exceeded her years. She seemed so very distrustful of adults. As a result, I asked her to model and she reluctantly agreed. I love that sort of depth in a portrait. I think you can see it here.
