"Emma at Eight Months" ... Still Behind

"Emma at Eight Months," oil, 10"h x 8"w, ©2017 Jill Banks
Granddaughter Emma is soon to be ten months old (as in tomorrow) but today's portrait is her at eight months. I know what her nine month portrait will be ... and will wait to see what will best portray Emma at ten months.

Portrait class begins tomorrow -- Sunday, January 29 -- and Still Life and Evening Paint begin on Tuesday.  Definitely, back to school time. I'm looking forward to working with fresh faces and familiar ones to make 2017 an artful one.

See more monthly portraits of Emma and other people at -- click on Works and then the Portraits and People Gallery.
