    Oil Painting for 92 year old Mom's Christmas present...

    I asked her to pick out her favorite Shirley Temple dolls from her collection.
    Any comments much appreciated...there is still much left to do, fwiw.

    Thanks for the nice comments. I've lost track of the hours spent on this... but it was a good initiation for my new Wacom Intuous 4 tablet. I've only recently gotten back into painting...

    My concern is that it doesn't look "painterly" -- too photographic. I plan on having it printed out on 16 x 20 "museum wrapped" canvas, fwiw.

    It does look a lot like a photo. Wish I was that good. She will have fun explaining that you painted it for her.
    I love it.

    Thank you! Nice, positive comments are always a great motivator!

    I am almost finished and I hope to have the 16 x 20 canvas print delivered by the end of the week.
