This has absolutely nothing to do with crochet (other than the fact that I made the little green sweater Holland is wearing in this photo)... :)
I wanted to tell you about a my young friend, Keesha. She is 16...going on 17...and is a high school student here in New Zealand with a gift for painting and drawing. She has just opened her Etsy shop so check her work out at http://www.kjarina.etsy.com.
She is great at custom portraits too. She did the above painting for me as a gift for my husband's very 1st father's day. The photo is of him holding our daughter, Holland, when she was 1 day old. I managed to keep it a secret and he was so "wowed" by it when he saw it! :)
