12x16 on wood. Finished today. There seems to be something missing. You can see if you can spot it. I painted it from a photo I took and it's missing from the photo too,....or maybe it's just hid. C&C always welcomed.

I can't see anything missing Doc unless you mean the fourth finger on her hand that is holding the cup? I think it is just hiding. Terrific job on this, I love it! The lighting is fabulous!

Wow!! All I see is what Lillian did...

She is perfect, I don't see anything missing.
But then again all I can see is a wonderfully rendered woman.

Beautiful work.

wonderful mood and exceptional detail handled superbly

Thank you Lillian, Susan, Kathleen and Ruth. It's no big deal, but I posted the picture and looked at it and thought "I missed a finger." But I think she just has it bent under, hid.

It does look like she's missing a finger, but otherwise, very well done!

Very nicely done.

Old folks are so interesting to paint. What you did here in acrylic is amazing. Great color and skin texture....HEY wait a minute: My neck is beginning to look like that....lol
Like it a lot. Derek

Thank you LavenderFrost, JStoltz and Derek. My neck is looking like that and my age spots are getting age spots.

You guys are funny :) I love this, and agree, older people have wonderfully interesting and character-filled faces.

Lipton teabag tag? Spoon handle?
Finger on hand perhaps?
Nice painting though.

Beautiful, I love the light :)

Great painting. I love the expression on her face. She looks tired, but tough and lovely at the same time.

I'm glad I took some time to backtrack through past postings as I missed this one. I love the strong contrasts & I really feel that you've captured the essence of her character. I'm particularly intrigued with the way in which you've rendered the bonnet. Terrific work!

Oh this is wonderful! She has such a strenght about her! Nice work - bravo!

I go with the spoon handle missing, however the painting is great and with or without the top of the spoon extended above her hand there is nothing wrong.

Great piece, I really like this style.

I think I resemble that remark, Jesslyn :wink2: ....:lol: If there is anything I would fix about getting old...it is the droopy bags under my chin :eek: ...yuk! But glad you would think my face interesting and filled with character.!:)

Thank you Coralie, Gayle, Ron, David. and Susan. I heard someone talking about "back in the old days" and come to find out they were talking about the 1980's. The 1980's!!

wonderfully done

It's a beautiful painting of character. You've rendered the textures very well indeed - and the patterns!
The light is superb.
That finger may well be hidden but I'd be inclined to un-hide some of it! JMO, of course!
Really like this one :thumbsup:

Susan, I think I meant "significantly older than you" when I said that. :lol: In fact, I think I meant older than anyone who frequents this forum. :o :heart: :lol:

What a brilliant painting! Terrific lighting, great shadows and awesome personality. Just perfect :)

Hard working people sometimes are missing fingers and appendages from farming accidents. This is not that uncommon.

The painting is very well done. Full of character!

Nice save, Jesslyn!!! :)
