Jean this is terrific! Don't ya just love old family pictures. And your mom is smiling. I have lots of old pics of relatives from maternal side of family and and not a one of them is smiling. So often people in old pictures look like they just lost thier best friend. Here your mom looks kinda like she is trying to hold in a smile but just can't quite do it. I think she needs a twinkle in her eye to go with it.

Like that very much Jean. About the smiling Sherry, I agree, but perhaps in a studio, it was a more formal occasion. Or no one thought of saying 'cheese'!

thanks Aggie :)

Sherry, Mom is always smiling, she is one of those people that sees the best in everything (nope I didn't inherit that trait :lol: )

thanks Marge labours of love are great aren't they :wave:

Barry thanks for peeking in :)

the more I look at it the more I feel there is something wrong with the eyes :(

I don't know how I missed this. This is wonderful. And, nothing wrong with the eyes that I can see.

Jean, I can't believe you remembered the portrait of my Mom.:) You've done your mother great justice here.:thumbsup: Not easy, but you've pulled it off!

You mentioned the eyes... from what I can see... they may be too monotone (the whites are almost the same tone as her sking)... perhaps bringing up the whites a few shades lighter would make a difference. Also, there is a patch of her hair on the right side that looks smudged.

I know, I know... I'm such a pain.;)
