Heather portrait…finally finished!
Ta-da! Here it is…finally! I’m happy with it now.
I painted over that helicoptor-sized pink bow I had put atop her head in an attempt to balance the big pink shoes (scroll down a few posts if you missed that monstrosity of a hair ornament) . I solved the exposed legs problem by painting the dress longer. Cropping solved the shoe problem.
I’ve been asked who gets this portrait when it is dry. In the short-term I need to keep it for a project I’m working on. (Some of you know what I’m talking about, but I hesitate to announce it to the world at large, lest I jinx it. ) Eventually I’ll give the portrait to Heather’s parents, I suppose, if they like it…I haven’t heard one way or another.
I may also put it on ImageKind — that’s a terrific service that makes gicleé prints of original art on demand. That way if, say, Heather’s grandparents wanted a copy of the painting they could order an archival fine art quality print. In the next day or two I’ll put a link to my ImageKind gallery there on the right side of this page.
As always, I welcome — and long for! — some feedback. Is there anyone out there?!?
