Ashyln's World

"Ashyln's World"  18" x 24"  Charcoal and acrylic on paper.

This work is a colloboration with a Make A Wish Kid to create a work for their annual Wish Ball silent auction. I wanted to honor her by creating a portrait around which she could tell the story of things she likes in little vignettes which she drew and painted. She is an aspiring artist and a quick study for the bits of advice I gave her along the way. And a very sweet and brave kid. During the portrait posing she had an episode of health concern that took about 1/2 hour to resolve and quite understandably should have ended the session afterwards, but once she got back to normal, wanted to continue and finish the session.
