Susan you look like you were having so much fun I just had to try the photo of you even though I'm not a portrait artist. This is a sketch and oil pastels blended with alcohol, wanted to use a medium I could do in bed where it is warm. Love the critters so will try to do another tomorrow.

My pre new year's resolution is to get back to painting and I'm signed up for a oil plein air workshop in Charleston in April. I don't want to be the worst artist there so need a lot of practice.

Thank you for hosting with all the lovely photos.

Gail

I really hate getting my photo taken, rarely do I not close my eyes or make a stupid face. I love what you did. Very cheerful indeed.

Gail -- if you paint in Charleston like you painted this, you'll do great! Love the forward colors and direct approach.
