Baby Grapevine

I do portraits on commission. I use a photograph and carefully trace it on my light box, then re-create it using fade-proof colored pencil. This grape baby is the daughter of a winery family. I debated whether to show it here and decided that I could as long as I mentioned no names or locations. She is holding a soft toy in the form (I think) of a stylized bee. She will grow as fast as a grapevine and this picture will commemorate vintage 2015.

Colored pencils on illustration board, 9 1/2" x 11 1/2", August 2015.
