This is a "for fun" break? :lol: - Now me, I'd take a break and do a still life for fun, to get away from the tedium of doing people.

This is an adorable picture. I love the crop, I love the colors - and the subject is so cute. Love the hand. I've been struggling with them lately. :)

I LOVE the strokes and colors you used. Wish you would do a WIP so I could see how you do this. I'd love to attain this type of color and style without blending. Awesome portrait. Simply beautiful.

Thank you Yvette, thank you Val .........

I thought I would just share this with you ........ I am updating my website, and just wondered if anything was listed on the search engines........ was quite shocked as came across this, and didnt know anything about it


11-17-2006, 02:35 PM
Hi Dawn,
Don't know whether to congratulate you or not as you don't know where it came from.Anyway it is nice to read. Did someone send it in for you? The Internet is sometimes a strange medium.
Anyway be pleased with the mention. It is a gorgeous painting. Congratulations :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

11-17-2006, 02:39 PM
Hi Marina...... no, I did send it in to a Competition online........ but never heard anything more..... so was very surprised to come across this :)

11-17-2006, 02:41 PM
I can imagine. Pleased to hear you sent it in. Really got me worried. Congratulations and be pleased. You deserve it.

Dawn, this is a beautiful portrait. If you do a WIP would you be so kind to do it step-by step so to speak, for those of us who are complete novices, I don't know about any one else but I sure would benefit.

I tried your web site a couple of times, but it failed to come up, I guess if you are up-dating it that would be the reason.


11-18-2006, 05:44 AM
Thank you Holley, .... thank you Will, nice to see you ..... thank you Nana..... thank you Bruce ha ha ha...... will leave all the Fun for you :D

Thank you CJ, sorry that you are having trouble viewing my website.... strangely enough lol, have had quite a few conversations regarding it ..... received a commission the other day through my husbands work place, and they said the same thing.... they couldnt view it either :confused: - have no idea as to why, its a Flash enabled site, so I dont know if that gives some problems
Problem is for me with WIP's is I work so fast, and get completely 'zoned' out, I forget to take the progress shots, and when I look, and Ive already finished lolol .... but I did a search on myself lol ......... boy!! do I talk ha ha ha .... and found this
