A Panda for Myah

12 x 12 - Oil on Canvas - Private Collection (Kelowna, B.C.)

The story behind the work:
Myah is my six year old granddaughter - bold, energetic, articulate, adorable and with a mind of her own.  On any given day, she will answer to a name only of her chosing and they range from 'Do-Se-Do' to 'Angelina-Ballerina' or 'Panda'!  (The apple didn't fall far from the tree though, as her mommy was named Patricia Leigh and is now known as Pabby!)  And so on the occasion of her third birthday, I gave her this painting so that she would have her very own 'Panda'!
