Keva In Paper


Keva 8x10 paper, dye ink

My girlfriend Gretchen asked me to do a portrait of her adopted daughter Keva. What a cutie with that awesome hair! Sadly I don't get to see my friend like I want because she lives in Massachusetts (but we are good about keeping in touch). She works with kids with Autism and that's how we met. What an amazing teacher and friend...who will always get artwork for free!

This is great! You could make a business out of doing just portraits, they are that good!

If you decide to do custom work, let me know. I would love to get my sister's dog done!

Love the portrait you did - it so captures her look, and the colors and textures are great!

Jennifer, the portrait you made is just awesome! I do love it!

I love this portrait! Did you use cloth? It has a quilted look to it. I second Alisa in that I would pay for a custom portrait of my daughter.

What a fantastic portrait! Lovely colors - and so cheerful :)

it's not cloth just paper and a tiny bit of dye ink...thanks for all the nice words!
