I believe it did take 2 days - you've done a wonderful job and should be really proud. It would have been a lovely portrait and now it is a beautiful 'painting'. Well done. #594486

Chastity Abbott January 26, 2007

Oh my sweetness!!! I simply love how she has one little arm up to her hat....such a little lady!!! (huge smiles) Her expression with her angel blue eyes is quite charming! You painted this beautifully and did not leave out one single detail...I love the pastel background and the upclose capture of her!! Nothing sweeter than a little girl with a little friend to sit with her. I love the colors in this, they all compliment each other wonderfully and the light is also a wonderful thing also!! I love it and I think you did awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I hope you do one of both of your little girls having a tea party someday with their little bear friends!!!) Beautiful work my friend!!!!! :o) #3874902

THANK YOU Amanda, Arlene, and Chastity!!! :)

Chastity, you notice the tiniest details! Thank you my friend, you made my day!!! :)

I had to "add" the pastel background! I also used different flesh-colored "paint" all over her body. I lost her dimples when I did that...so I had to paint them back in! :)
