Hi Dale.... I'm in awe! This must have been incredibly difficult! The only thing I see that gives me problems is the dark line over the upper lip.... but I am still awestruck at how wonderful this is.... your shading, soft edges and background are perfection! Donna

You have said this is done in oil in one place and encaustic in another. Either way it is wonderful. I assume it is encaustic. Portraits are so difficult to do in encaustic and you have done a superb job here. The expression is excellent. Impressive.

Very nice, I love the texture and light.
Is it from a Rubens?
