Fantastic portrait. She is adorable. Love the colors and effect. #596588

Thank you Kay! The original image had the hat cut off so I had to paint-in "more" hat :)
She was a pleasure to paint. I think she looks SO feminine here with all the lace and peachy-pink colors. I LOVE this one SOOOO much! It turned out EXACTLY like I pictured it in my head! :) #3888535

My sweet friend, I can NOT begin to tell you how much I LOVE this portrait...My jaw literally dropped in awe over this one...I am stunned and I don't know what to say but "Thank You"!!!! (smile) You are so talented and gifted and you made my beautiful daughter EXQUISITE here!!! I am ordering this TONIGHT! I can not wait to get this one in...And, I forgot but this image is one of my Mom's favorite images of her because she said it reminds her of when she was a little girl (the expression) so that makes it even more special...You took an "okay" image of mine and made it into a MASTERPIECE that I will TREASURE FOREVER!!!!!!!!! Much Love,
CJ #3888617

My heart is pleased as punch that you are so happy with it!

God Bless you and your beautiful family!

Here is the original image. I paint all of my photos from the original SOOC (straight out of camera). Please remember this is an unedited image. #3888690

cj patterson January 29, 2007

its funny to see an image of mine "naked" with none of my little edits...LOL...but I wanted ppl to see what the before looked like so they can actually see what incredible "work" and "effects" went in to this...

way to go my friend!!! you go girl!!!!! #3888719
