I went on a trip to Canada for a wedding. I met Cedar, who is age 4, and she immediately struck me as a very fey little girl. I decided to draw her as a fairy since I was at a party where I knew very few people and I had to keep myself busy. I didn't even bother trying to get her to hold still - I just observed her when I could - so this drawing isn't an exact likeness (of course) and she appears a little older than 4. I finished the drawing the next day and gave it to Cedar's mother, who was particuarly nice to me and my boyfriend during the trip. This is just a picture taken with my digital camera, so pardon the image quality and distortion.
