|"Amelia's Starry Night", 3" x 2 1/2" (6 1/2" x 4" framed), egg tempera miniature portrait on Kelmscott vellum|
|(shown slightly larger for detail)|
|And here is a picture of little Amelia in April with her first ponytail! Is this little girl cute or what?!!|
This is a portrait of Amelia, daughter of Erika and Brian Boccia. Amelia's mom, Erika, is my sister-in-law's niece. As with the portrait "Carol By Moonlight", I used a new gemstone pigment in my pigment collection made from lapis lazuli along with the other blues in the sky of this painting.
