Hello and welcome back! I wanted to share the painting in the works of Laura and Mary Ingalls (Melissa Gilbert and Melissa Sue Anderson) from the popular tv series “Little House On The Prairie”…one of my all time favorite shows! I never tire of watching these shows, especially when the girls were little. Melissa Gilbert was perfect with that impish face of hers and innocent, but sometimes naughty ways. Melissa Sue Anderson as Mary was perfect as well, as the obedient sister that always seemed to do the right thing. I loved that there was always a lesson to be learned in every show.
But anyway, I wanted to get the both of these characters in a painting with the little house in the background, almost like my other painting of Laura by herself. I feel it is coming out just the way I wanted it too. When I complete this I will share it here and also on my Etsy Shop. Please check back again, and I hope you like how it’s turning out. Thank you! Stay safe!
Well, I have been busy. I am working on THREE paintings at the same time now, because I can’t wait to see each one completed! This is crazy!
Lady Diana is coming along nicely, she just needs her hair and small pieces completed to become a finished piece. I wanted to get her face almost completed before I went any farther, as it makes me feel comfortable in the fact that it looks like her. Now I can proceed with the rest.
The Amish girl is getting there, but I still need to do the basket of peaches and her hair. Why am I so afraid to do her hair????? I think it’s because I really am happy with the way she is coming out now, and I’m so afraid if the hair doesn’t look right, I’ll be very disappointed. That’s just me! But like every other painting before this one, I have proceeded to the next stage and I have survived. Thank goodness!
The last painting I just started randomly as I have loved this character and television series for such a long time, I…I…just had to! Little Melissa Gilbert as Laura Ingalls on Little House and the prairie! She was a spitfire! There could not have been a more perfect person to play this part in a series, and I loved watching her and the show…I still do! So she is now added to my drawing board. I have completed more than what you see here now, but I will show you soon the completed pieces. I can’t wait! Stay tuned!
