This is Louisa Beaman. She married Joseph in a field disguised as a man with a hat and a coat. George A. Smith named a settlement "Fort Louisa" in her honor, the name didn't last long, eventually they changed the name of the town to Parawon. After J.S.'s death she married Brigham Young and came west. She had two sets of twins and a single birth. All five children died. Acrylic painting on a 24x24 inch wood canvas

This is Isabel's sister Olivia. I've never met her, but you can tell she is a sweetheart, I hope she likes her painting. I love her glasses and her beauty mark - how lucky to have it in the perfect spot! I need to have her mother tell me a little about this young lady and her beautiful big sister Isabel. I want to know more.....

I did this painting as practice for the Utah Watercolor Society Spring Show, we'll see if I actually do it. What I love most about this painting is Paul, his wild hair pulled back in a head band and his big beautiful smile. His arms are so big and strong to hold and protect his babies. I am a thinking of naming this piece "A Gift From Tonga".
I feel like if I enter it in a show, it should be perfect, but I love my imperfections in my paintings. This was done while my hubby was watching the Super Bowl.
