Holding Hands - abstract painting of mother and child

10" x  8" x 2" Oil on Cradled Panel
Oh my goodness!  I found some 2 inch deep cradled panels on sale - they only had 3 so I bought all three!  So much fun to paint on - the paint just glides on the smooth surface.
This started as a commission sketch for a gallery.  I have not heard back from the gallery so I suppose the commissioner is not interested in the sketches I did.  I fixed this up though because I didn't quite like the original painting/sketch.  I made the little girl a little thicker and made her hair more blond or light.  And then I made them more abstract with only wisps of color.
