Unfinished portrait

Today I'm working on a portrait that I started at least a year ago. To be completely honest, I don't remember when I started it. It was meant to be a gift for my mother in law and since today is her birthday, I decided to try finishing it up so I can give it to her.....FINALLY!! This is a portrait of one of my nieces. I have already given my mother in law portraits of my other niece and my two nephews. Now, of course, I have a new niece who just turned one, so I'm a little behind! Anyway, I guess it's better late than never! This started as a watercolor, but I decided to finish it with my new favorite...H2O oils.

In other news, I have to take my youngest son to the Dr. for an ultrasound today. He has a lump in his left breast that is most likely a cist, but the Dr. wants to be sure. So....keep some positive thoughts going for him please!

What a cutie!You did a wonderful job! Don't feel bad Paula about being behind. I always start paintings,put them aside and finish them later. Your not alone.
I do hope that everything works out ok with your son. Please keep me up to date on that. :)

The portrait is coming along nicely, Paula! I have 2 paintings sitting on my easel that I started almost one year ago to the date. I might try my new h20 oils on them to see how they feel. Thanks for the advice.

I'll keep your son and you in my thoughts today.

Thanks Angela and Cynthia!

My son's appt. ended up having to be rescheduled because their equipment went down. Now we're going back on Tuesday. UUGGHH, I hate having to wait longer to find out he's fine! Don't they know I've already worried myself to death with this?
