...and finished up this morning. A little nervous about showing this one.




I based it on this pic of Lindsay Lohan. No I'm not a LaLohan fan, but I just thought it was a pretty pic Smiley

It caught my eye right away.  It's a beautiful painting-very sweet and tender.  You should be proud of this one..don't be nervous about showing it.

Wonderful Painting, and I also think it is WAAAAAAAAAY more prettier than the inspirational piece. So yeah, Be VERY PROUD of it. I love the texture, I am hoping to dabble in in texture painting during my vaca in two weeks.

Whew...that made me feel much better. Thank you! I think it's just kinda different from what I normally do, and I just wonder how it will go over...

That's very cool! I like the colors you chose. Do you paint in oils? I think this is going to get a positive reaction to whomever you show it to.

And about that Lindsay Lohan photo - wasn't she imitating a Marylin Monroe photo?

Anyways - great work!

I think your painting is much nicer than the source picture!

I agree it's a very nice piece, very soft yet full of texture and movement.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Thank you all! You have no idea how nervous I was to post this! I have to get over the worry that people aren't going to like my stuff...because there are ALWAYS going to be people who don't like my stuff! You can't please all the people all the time, right?

Anyhow, thanks once again for filling my heart with joy!!

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.
