MY COMMENTS:
Hi, all :) <br><br>Today is Mom's birthday, and its finally getting to the point where she has no more wall space. I was somewhat conce<br>ed about what I was going to do. I decided to try something different, though, and do a miniature. This is from a photo of us when I was about 4 years old. I consider it special because I don't have many photos of my mom, period, let alone pictures of us together. Below is a picture of the original photo, the painting, and the painting cropped and framed. I decided on the miniature since it will fit on her nightstand or wherever else she would like it. Its also done very loosely, as she really likes my looser, more impressionistic work - even when everyone else hates it, she's always there to say, "it works for me!".

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Anything goes - this will go to her this evening.

works great! beautiful capture of emotion and life.

I also think the scene in the first photo, with the paints in the background, is a great capture and would make an interesting painting.

Rough style but works well!

I think you have captured an authentic likeness of both subjects. The features and expressions on both faces are even easier to connect with than the photo and it would have been interesting to have seen your painting just as the fabulous piece of art that it is before seeing the photo. thanks
