Hello all this is my latest portait of my Daughter inlaws Grandparents, Haven't realy titled it yet. edited, titled The Laytons, their last name.
She wanted me to paint it for her mom for Mother's day, well, she asked me like a few days before, unfortunately its going to be late and still needs to be shipped, so we decided it would be cheaper for her in shipping if I did it on canvas paper and we matted it and shipped it to her mom in Photo mailer.

Acrylic on 9x12" Canvas Paper,
Didn't take many pics in the process.

Kathy, your daughter-in-law and her grandparents should certainly be pleased with this! I know you said at one point your heart just wasn't in this project but I don't think anyone would know it upon seeing the completed painting. I think you did especially well with the eyes and glasses which are always a challenge.
