"Hailey" by Xan Blackburn. Acrylic on canvas

  Hailey's portrait was done as part of one of my occasional *Portrait Marathons.  Hailey's portrait has a retro feel to it that I was surprised by, but quite like.  I can see her smiling out on an advertisement from the 30s, probably for something supposed to make you happy.

*That's when I announce a first-come, first-served sign up, and paint small portraits of each pet as quickly as I can (not always that quickly!), until the alloted number has been reached or I run out of canvasses or time.  There is always a donation made out of the proceeds for these marathons to a pet welfare organization I choose ahead of time.
