hehe :D yep its fine with me Lee :) I dont think ive ever had my portrait painted by someone before its a neat thing if somewhat surreal to have happened.

like your interpretation..its feels somewhat monet-esque (thats a good thing)

I'm getting that it's just a little later than that -- post impressionist or expressionistic.

You're right. It is flattering to have someone paint one's portrait. :D :D :D

Dear Selby, Thank you!!! i liked the way the background light was on the side of your face, there was mostly shadow and light and pretty lines, i put your little avatar up and lifted the shades from it, all the rest was freehand, most important that it was ok with you, glad you liked it!

Dear D Akey,Thank You, do respect your opinion!
