Heather...oil on canvas/hardboard panel

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?!?
