This piece is loosely based on a photo my daughter took of herself and emailed to me. (Having her live all the way across the country would be even more difficult without current technology!)

Olivia has always been originally inventive with her make-up. Artfully applied lightning bolts worn in high school gradually evolved into more sophisticated looks; but still she will always stand out in a crowd…and not just because she is almost 6 feet tall and gorgeous!

The silver shine she applied to her lips for this special occasion definitely echo her shimmering personality. She brings sparkle, life and excitement to every place she visits…much like she does in our family.

11′ x 14″ acrylic on canvas (with iridescent glitter paint accents)

    A truly unique painting which Olivia will just love. Olivia is a unique young lady, very much her own person, with a “shimmering ” personality. A very special gift.

  2. My memory did serve me well in this case. Rosemary may you live long and your prodigy always prosper. Rick Hilber
