Oh baby Hayden! This adorable munchkin is a friend's baby. He's about 6 months old in this picture. When his mama was showing me his latest pictures, I tenatively asked if I could try to paint a portrait from the photo. She said "Sure!"

I had never painted a baby, a baby with yummy checks, a baby with an intent stare.... oh those EYES! They are really that blue. And his lashes are destined to entice any female that looks at him. I just love the way the painting turned out.
So did his mama :-)
