I was working on four boards at once and then finished this one. I am down to three.
My husband was taking pictures at the reception of one of the shows I am in and this little girl really struck me. I got permission from her mom to use it for a board and here it is. 8x10.

Diana, you make all of us aspiring portrait artists to want to hang it up. This is really really really good.

Re: Untitled

Thank you Karen.
Thanks Patrick, Yeah, I figured that out and changed the name.
Thank you Harry, that means a lot coming from you.
Thanks Lorna. It's kinda funny her mother and I exchanged several e-mails and she said she would like to see it when it is done. I sent her an image and I have had no response.

Re: Untitled

Only you can manage to take a snapshot and turn it into an amazing art piece! Brava!!

PS - I have no idea why but in a way this photo makes me think of what Cathy might have looked like as a little girl and I wonder if it was anything like this girl. I know, I'm weird.

Thanks Rodman!
Thank you DonnaRae!
Patrick, you made me think of someday trying to make an entire board smooth using a scalpel as an exercise. "shudder"
Yeah, Sandra, you are weird, but you're my kinda weird!

Diana, wish I had the vocabulary to offer something worthy. Your scratchwork is so unbelievable.

Another great one Diana, boy you are just on a scratching roll...way to go.
