SOLD Eyes of Innocence

"Eyes of Innocence" 12x12" Oil on canvas

I don't paint many portraits but was simply awe struck with a recent photo of Annie, my three-year-old niece. Looking at her big expressive blue eyes, I couldn't help but think those eyes could have been what the Virgin Mary's eyes might have looked like as a child. With a look of wide-eyed wonder and unconscious innocence, did she have even a glimmer of understanding to where her life would lead? Somehow those eyes seem to reflect the unknowing, yet somehow knowing look of total acceptance for all that would unfold. I didn't think a 6x6" canvas could do justice to those eyes, so this one is a larger 12x12" canvas.
Thank you for viewing my painting.
