MUSE :: Kimaya

KIMAYA - Sanskrit for 'divine'.
She is definitely a little goddess. I recently was commissioned to paint her, which I am super excited about. I actually got back to doing art full time by drawing children first-kids are huge inspirations...they always keep me in check and in touch with my own inner child. When she first came with her mom (whom I also doing a piece for) to visit my place and take photos for the piece, she just loved the fact that there was art everywhere. She asked me to give her a sketch book and started drawing her own piece. While working she had several spontaneous outbursts of "I am an artist!". It was a wrap for me. I am her number one fan.
