#16 The Flower Girl

I recently went to Lake Powell with family and friends, on the ride down I rode with little Josie and her father Charles. Josie spent most of the ride drawing and telling us about animals. She is one special kid with lots of personality.

I like all the paintings you've
posted here on your blog. I enjoy
"fresh" painted portraits, and yours are very enjoyable. Thanks
for posting your art.

I love this project you are working on and I am so thrilled each time you post a new painting in the series. I can't get enough! I am astounded by how you capture the character of each person with your paint and brushstrokes. I really get a sense that I know a bit about each and every one of them. Genius!

More please :)

I just found your blog and I love the personalities you've painted. Really alive. Do you need more volunteers?

I just happened upon your paintings at the Union Station and was blown away. So I looked you up right when I got home. I really love your work! I am definitely a fan!

Hi Zachary,
I hope everything is okay... you haven't posted for awhile. I'm sure there are many of us who are anxiously awaiting painting #17. You are probably working on the flood of commissions you have received from people who have found your blog!
Take care,

Stunning! You've portrayed this adorable child's innocence perfectly. I am just venturing into portrait painting and your work is such an inspiration! It's been a pleasure looking through your blog. I will most definitely visit often!

Beautifully rendered! You captured her body language and facial expression perfectly!

Holy cow. We don't really know each other, but I just saw this piece in the USU Warehouse show (I also have stuff in there). Amazing. Love it.
