Painting Sophia

This is Julia's grandchild, and my godson's daughter! She arrived a few years ago as a surprise and has done everything to heighten the awe and wonder in her family's life. Though I have met Sophia several times, tomorrow I will meet her mother for the first time. I painted this today as a holiday gift. Julia went to art school with me, but (and I checked) she hasn't painted Sophia yet. She has taken tons of photographs, and I used one of those as a source inspiration for this. I hope it is good. It was fun to work on a purple ground, to add wings, but I fear that the hands are a bit clumpy. It's so hard to paint hands...
This continues the theme of wings for 2014.
