I had to do just that one last thing.....
Now it's turned into one of those things that will bug me because I can't take it back. Sometimes you've just gotta know when to say when, ya know?

My coloured pencils are nibs now. I guess I'll have to find a picture that will make use of some of my other colours to give them fair play.

The painting was bowed when I photographed it for the blog, so the wall behind looks a little bent. It's not in the actual painting.

I went to get an estimate on having it framed. After the estimate I decided it looked lovelier hidden away in my portfolio.

I told Mr. P. this morning, "Well, been there done that, what hobby should I try next?"
That didn't go over well, and apparently I will be doing more paintings.

I've contacted one potential model, and am hoping that maybe out of the kindness of her heart that Adventurer will send some more pictures of beautiful children my way. I have one of a little angel that she gave me that will soon be in the works.

You come for coffee and I'll drag out the pictures and you can have your pick. I've not some non-people pictures that might get you to use some different colors.

Also - you could go my route, and that's look at the idea frame sizes (I go for the one that suits an 11 X 14 output for my larger pix) ... it's not a great frame (for longevity), but, when it comes to the looks - once it's on the wall, its lovely.

The other option is to go to Patrick Gordon Framing - they do the deal for the artist ...

Gorgeous - once again you amaze me. My dad is an artist - but he doesn't do people. My mother-in-law is an artist as well. I have been surrounded by art all my life and always wished that I could draw and paint the way others do.

Anyway, needless to say, everytime you post something you have done I am amazed (and maybe just a tad bit jealous ;-) )
