An Acrylic Portrait of My Daughter

"Sheila in Pink"   
Acrylic on Masonite, 36x48", c. Catherine Vines 
Since I am on a family roll, I thought I would post another painting of my favorite model, my daughter.
This is part of a larger family collage, painted in acrylic paints using a palette knife.
I love the colorfulness and clarity of acrylics; but I have to admit, when I am using them, I miss the smell of oils.
On the other hand, acrylics seem to encourage me to paint with a playfulness missing from my use of oils.
