Portrait of Aster Completed

Hello again.

Well, here it is! The finished portrait of Aster!  I hope you like it.

So sorry it took so long, but I wanted to make sure Kevin Williams got the portrait safe and sound( it ended up getting there the day before Christmas) and that they opened it, viewed it and everything… before I put the portrait up here on my blog.

Anyway, they all loved the portrait and Kevin said Aster had a cute reaction when it was opened. That made me really happy, of course. He could probably tell you more of what happened, but I am just glad it got there and it is safe, and once it is under glass, it will last a lifetime! Enjoy Kevin Williams and family.  Aster was a joy to paint!

Also, I now have a listing I created on Etsy made just for  ordering portraits. In case you are interested it is here:


A gift that can last a lifetime. Thank you!

    It is just beautiful. She looks like she stopped by just for a moment then went back out to play! Cheryl really got the “adorable little girl” look just right. Great job.

    Super job, Cheryl…you really captured her face, the sort of impish nature of a 3-year-old comes right through, we’ll be treasuring this one for a long time! Thank you for creating such an outstanding piece of work!
