First grandchild in safe hands

© Pam Van Londen 2007 In Safe Hands 11x14 acrylic on canvasboardMy first grandchild was born this month and seems so pretty and peaceful, I just had to paint her portrait.

She’s pictured here in her daddy’s safe hands.

I painted alla prima; without drawing first, though I did use a photograph as reference. It was taken on her second day at the hospital.
