This is a "VERY" beautiful heirloom painting! There are so many details in this painting that take my breathe away and leave me falling in love with it!! From his beautiful skin that is painted, it looks so smooth & realistic to his glorious curls that just glows with beauty! The focus on his clothing and the tiniest details from the glass buttons, to the shadow work leave me completely speechless! This is rich with beauty and your heart shines from your talent! This is golden.......I love it! #3809660
