Christmas Portrait

Hope all of you had a very merry Christmas!

One of my handmade Christmas presents this year was an attempt at portrait painting.  From a favorite photo of two of my granddaughters when they were quite young, I painted these two as princesses complete with jeweled crowns and gowns.

This was quite a challenge for me… most of my faces are of imaginary people so there is no concern about making them actually resemble the subject!  I have a renewed admiration for those artists who do portraiture!
