Thank you Dana. This was truly a work of love, my most favorite portrait to paint and my wife and family love this as well.

Wow such beautiful work here! Taking some time off and thought I'd check out what is going on here on wet canvas. Gorgeous works

This is the last painting I did. I have been trying to loosen up a bit with my portraits.

Re: Portrait Gallery - Post them here also!

I agree that it's lovely! What a sweet child, and I love how you've handled this. I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks so much for sharing this.

Well.... as 2012 is drawing to a close, we will start a new Portrait Gallery thread for January 2013 tomorrow. Stay tuned!
... and all the best for a Happy New Year full of wonderful art-making!

Re: Portrait Gallery - Post them here also!

Thank you Carol, Len and Lauren for taking the time to post a reply. You are all very kind.

I started with the reference photo from wet canvas library. Thanks to the great photo to start with from gcooper Such a sweet picture! So I couldn't mess up too badly with a wonderful reference to begin with!
