12x16 Oil on canvas. This is Charlee. She is a beautiful little girl I had the privilege of painting this last month.
Charlee is one of the only known children in UT living with Late Infantile Batten Disease, a condition that will take her life within a few short years. Charlee started having frequent daily seizures at only 3 1/2, and she and her family have endured 21 long months of testing to find this rare genetic diagnosis. This process has taken a major emotional and financial toll on her loving family, who would do anything for their little girl.
I felt so grateful for the opportunity to complete this portrait for the Nelson family in honor of Charlee and their love for her.
