Courage

Private Collection - Not For Sale
11"x14" Oil on stretched canvas.

Courage

Motivated by last week's Daily Paintworks "The Emotion Challenge".  This is a young woman who is highly intelligent and extremely sensitive.  At first, I thought I was painting "confidence", but I know there is a certain amount of fear behind this perfectionist's blue eyes.  Despite that fear, she takes on challenges with creativity and great courage, often astounding professors, employers, and fellow students with unexpected outcomes.  My courageous daughter, Anna Claire.

Congratulations on honoring your beautiful daughter this way.
A fine painting in its own merit. You must be proud of both!
