My daughter, Annabelle DeCamillis, age 16, just sold this painting
for a very grown-up price.
It's her first large piece, a self-portrait. She plans on doing a series of
portraits of everyday people in period costumes, doing everyday things in everyday places.
Her work is inspired by her love for costume-making, and for sitting down
wherever she is and drawing the scene right in front of her.
Today we are celebrating her first day at a new high school. My hat is off to my strong, brilliant, talented, funny, sassy, and sincere kid. She's made her mom proud, and inspired so many people around her.
