almost finished. . .

(7x7")


I've got to work on her shirt some more and I think that will be about it. My husband is going to build a wide frame for this that I will finish with a black-brown coat of wax. I'm glad to get this painting out of the way. It was intimidating but I think it's turning out really well. Looking at her makes me feel peaceful.




Now it's about time to start two other paintings for the Dollhouse Fundraiser that are due at the end of the month. I'm going to paint tulips for those. I have no idea what tulips, but tulips nonetheless.
