This portrait of my daughter practicing the flute started out as a black-and-white exercise for Danni Dawson's portrait painting class. I decided to turn it into a regular portrait in color. It is a small painting for a half-length portrait with a musical instrument and all! By the way, she was playing C. Chaminade's "Concertino"--a romantic, dramatic, and difficult piece. She is enraptured in the beauty of the music!
