If anyone ever thought, "Hey, where does Lizzie get her inspiration?" I think this painting answers that question. All of my paintings are based on some part of my life. This one happens to be of myself and my daughter. When I first started it, the piece seemed a little somber or sad when I wanted quite the opposite. I hope I was able to turn it around.
The quote in the background says, "If I could keep any moment it would be this, watching you and holding my breath at the wonder of it all." I found this quote by Brian Andreas and knew it was perfect. If you've never seen his stuff before, check it out here. I love his tender and true descriptions of life.
