My portrait from Melissa arrived! (serious damage to the package- luckily the painting is fine!) I will get a photo soon.

Thank you Melissa you have done a marvelous portrait!

I just saw this (been away from WetCanvas for awhile -- so busy). I'm glad the painting arrived in good shape despite the package being damaged. I love my painting from Bethany -- she did such a great job -- very professional and such lush colors and amazing likeliness of me. If this thread is still open soon, I'll post a photo. Thanks Bethany!

Just returned from sailing to find my swap portrait from Erin Emily waiting for me .



Such a good likeness, thanks for being such a terrific swap partner Erin Emily.

Hi Dennis, yes Erin Emily did a fine job it was a late second swap. So this year was one of the best with work from both Lawrence and Erin Emily

WOW! The finished pieces look great.

Here's an update on my portrait of Maryna, almost finished. I still have to make some adjustments here and there but this should be finished by my next update. More to come soon!
