Kennedy’s mom Leslee is my friend. We met through my sister-in-law Leigh.  Leslee showed me photo’s of her daughter and I was over the moon with how cute she was. Seriously cute… SO cute that I couldn’t wait to paint her.

I’ve seen so many photos of her that were great candidates, but then last week Leslee posted this one on facebook and that was it. The next day after printing out the photo, I pulled out my paints almost instantly the second I got home from work. I couldn’t wait to capture her face on paper with watercolours.

So surprise Leslee! I painted Kennedy =) I hope that it captures the essence of  her real life cuteness even a little bit. She is a little gem, and I can’t wait to hang with her in real life.
