Hi everyone!

This is a stippling I made from a picture taken of my grandparents back in the 40's. Their 50th anniversary is a little over a week away......and I wanted to post this for any comments or suggestions for improvement before I have it framed. Thanks :)

Absolutely beautiful--the folds of the clothing appear so soft. Wonderful! How big is this, Jess?

Thanks so much everyone! :) Susan....it is 11x14. Now I just have to decide what kind of frame to put it in.

Jess, this is beautiful. I want to do a portrait of my parents back then too, but have been unable to decide what pose to use. Your grandparents are going to love this, and yes watch out for the water works:)

Thanks so much sassybird! (I like that name....fun to say :) ) I'm having it framed tomorrow and I'll be giving it to them next week. Hope they don't mind how big it ended up being with the matt and frame!

There definately is nothing to critisize!! this is perfect. It really captures the love between them and I am sure that this will be the best present they have ever recieved!!
I would love to see some close ups so we can see the technique that you have used to do their hair. it is perfect.
