This is one of the first oil paintings I have done in several years so it took a while to get used to it again.
The portrait is of baby Tam, who lives in an orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. She was about 1 year old when I met her, and took her photo. That was in May 2007. The kids I met then are now the subjects for my paintings. I'd love to one day be able to go back and see how they are all doing, and how they've grown.
The painting was unfinished in these photos.
