Oil Painting of Klara

Portrait of Klara done by her great grandfather and artist, Jimmie Bartlett

Klara is my great grandchild and as you can see, she is a beautiful little girl. I never thought I would live long enough to see my great grand children, much less paint a portrait of them.  Klara is the oldest of the three so I started with her.   I was able to get her to stand still for a pose, even if it was only for a couple of minutes.   The painting was done with water mixable oils on a 14 inch by 11 inch canvas. Blessings My Friends, Jimmie Bartlett
