My first dark skinned Minxette! I was so excited, and I have to say I absolutely fell in looooooove with it. ( As cocky as that may seem )
I started off as I usually do, a basic sketch in mind, never on paper , with the image of flowing hair. Yeah, that did not last long.
I started with her huge fro, and limited her body to just a torso.
Long lashes, green eyes, tiny specks of gold glittered chandelier earrings, and a cute little overbite….
I made her pop out of a tribal/ornate frame with a swirled background surrounded by huge chunks of glitter.
I hope you guys enjoy this piece as much as I am, and if you would like to own this 16″x20″ studio canvas, Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org because it is currently on Sale!

I met up with Jen in Fort Independence with a huge bag of overnight clothes and plans to head to Connecticut.
Plans quickly changed. Destiny, which we all call “Tuti” and is Jen’s niece, was having a performance in her school today.
So we packed up all the kiddies and headed on our way to the MNR. With all the noise and hyper moves everyone quickly scattered giving us places to sit.
That’s Michael, Jen’s brother hooking me up with some chicken wings while we wait for our train to arrive!
Jesse, the youngest brother,Jen and I.
Since we had no napkins to clean up after those chicken wings, to clean up Justen’s hands Jen had the mastermind idea of using pantyliners.lol Oh, man……Poor Justen, he looked humiliated, especially after I snapped a pic!
After finally arriving, a few stops before Poughkeepsie, we were picked up and drove to the school. Though I didn’t get a chance to grab a pic, the school looked beautiful, spacious and almost as if it was fake and able to be used as a backdrop for some cliche highschool movie.
Tuti did great though. She first sang Adele’s Someone like you, then Ceelo Green’s Forget You. of course, it has to be forget you, keeping it classy for the kids.
She then came out, sang and danced a trio in her stunning glittery red dress. Yes, the definitely stole the show!
Here’s a few pics of her special night. ( You guys should already know when you click on any picture it becomes larger )
Everyone was so proud of her! Once the show was over, we all headed out to Giacomo’s for pizza. Where my plate was looking way too good for my own good. I had pizza, a philly cheese steak, philly cheese chicken and some organic fresh mozzarella pizza that was waaaaaay too good!
This family is so inviting, you can clearly see how much love they have for one another. I’ve met many of them on separate occasions, but there’s something about special occasions, I felt so welcomed and grateful for being able to share this moment with them.
Look how cute they are !
Especially with all these little princesses running around who are so fond of their uncles and daddies. Too adorable!
Look at how awesome my plate is, well was..yum! After getting fat we all headed to Mayra, Jen’s sister house and started talking and then a nerf gun fight started!!
I was ready for war.. especially since there was only gun! I would catch the ammo, stuffing my bra with the neon green bullets until I was ready for war!
Once things calmed down we had a little glow in the dark, uv, blacklight fun.
Of course I couldn’t resist leaving my mark with some glow in the dark markers on Jen’s leg =]
Until next time readers !
