This is Alexandria, middle name Makalapua. She is riding on her father's shoulders in the original reference photo. I am pretty sure she has her parents wrapped around her finger, hence her royal title!
I study with 3 great artists on a fairly consistent basis. Stanley Goldstein almost every Monday night. Tim Horn once a month for critiques and at least once a year with Peggi Kroll Roberts. Perhaps you see Peggi's influence here. Well, at least you see her daughter Ali in the forefront.
I brought this little painting into our critique session this past Monday. I won't state what I thought I needed to correct but it was suggested by Tim to do this as a larger work. I think I will!
