Lovely Joel, it's difficult dealing with a smile in a painting, but this looks good. I like the palette.

Thank you guys.

Barry, yes the teeth gave me pause... but I treated them just like any other shape.

Jean, this was painted aprox. [email protected]

Annie, thanks for the thumbs up. Sometimes I spend lots of time on the eyes... this time I decided to treat the eyes with only a minimum of detail.

Nice, nice, nice! I really like how you simplify your subjects, leaving out unnecessary details, concentrating on their character/personality. Outstanding!

Terrific Joel and what a great smile. A good smile is always so difficult and of course, you pulled it off wonderfully.
