Beanie Bean. 2012. Gouache and acrylic on paper, 12 × 9″.
All right, so she's not my girl, but "Beanie" is my girlfriend's new niece and she is "nuclear cute." I finally got to meet her in Atlanta this past weekend. It's been quite some time since I held a baby (they're heavy). With a terrifying grip, ample cheeks and hair, I just had to paint her for Mother's Day.
