Kindness Matters

A new little 6 x 6 canvas

Her eyelashes are inspired by Mandarine. I just love her girls so I tried a little whispy eyelash technique on this little girl.

I've titled her 'Kindness Matters' : 'Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting their own battle'
I love that quote and I need to remind myself of it daily.

Good night,

She is lovely. I loved looking at her close up - such pretty features. Really like the colors you chose for her too.

Aww she is beautiful and I love the lashes!!! The quote is lovely too and so true, something I need to remember!! I wish I could say I'm off to do some painting but alas I decided it would be a good idea to pull out my pantry today and rearrange, little did I know what I was getting myself into at this rate I'll be able to paint again by next Tuesday.... ;0)

My favourite colours! Love this, so pretty, and it's interesting to see how you incorporate ideas you've seen elsewhere into your work. Also that quote is really nice.
