Curls & Cupcakes

 Curls & Cupcakes
8" x10" Pastel on Velour
In a Private Collection

This precious little redheaded girl is my great grand niece.  I did this pastel a couple of years ago as a Christmas present for her folks.  They loved it!

Recently I was trying to decide if I should enter an art contest and saw the Dakota Art Pastels Soft Pastel Competition advertised.  I was unsure if I should even enter much less which pastel I would use.  But, last night right before the deadline I submitted "Curls & Cupcakes" for the Summer Quarter Contest.  

Winners will be announced October 1, 2020.  Who knows what will happen but I wouldn't know if I didn't enter. So it is out there.  I'll keep you posted on the results.

In the meantime, if you decide you'd like me to do a portrait for you let me know.  You can email me at  Be sure to check out my website too at Karen Hargett Fine Art.

But Jesus said, Suffer little children and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.  ~  Matthew 19:14| King James Version

Thank you Jo! She is a beautiful little girl and that painting was fun to do especially with all those curls. I don't know how I'll do in the contest but thanks for your "good luck" wishes.
