The prettiest little girl in the whole wide world

Look at this sweet little girl!

This is my little girl, Lexus. We went to a Mother & Daughter tea party a few weekends ago and I couldn’t stop taking pictures!

I am still working on getting better at portraits. People are my favorite subject to paint, and my favorite paintings tend to have figures in them. There is something about capturing an expression and a mood and a personality all at once… I wish I could do it better, but I have always tended to paint landscapes and flowers, which were easier for me- so I really have not gotten the practice that is needed to really paint people well. So from now on, hopefully you’ll be seeing more figure paintings from me as I work on getting better at them!


  1. She’s beautiful, Lauren! This is a fantastic portrait! happy (belated) mother’s day πŸ™‚

  5. OK Lauren. I tried to paint a dog today and it came out looking like a horse. This beautiful painting of your daughter actually looks like your daughter πŸ™‚ Don’t know what’s wrong today…not feelin’ it. Back to my drawing board.

  8. If your daughter is sweet, beautiful and has a great smile then I think you were very successful with this painting. Here I thought you were college age. I need to get what ever magic potion you’re taking.

  12. I found your blog from Rene PleinAir. I haven’t looked at your other posts, but I just wanted to say way to go stepping out of your comfort zone with painting! I have always wanted to paint people, but never feel like they turn out well, so it’s inspiring to see another artist trying! I think this is a beautiful painting.
