Jasmine, 2019, Acrylic on Canvas, 26x 32 inches
Jasmine is a painting based on a photograph that was taken by her mother. I saw the photograph and was inspired to do a painting of this beautiful little girl who I call my niece. Since she had held herself up by holding onto the corner of the wall I wanted to capture that having her hand holding onto the edge of the painting.
