Well folks....this is becoming dreamy. Really. Never did I think I could do this. In fact, I remember after Billy and I married I attempted to paint a portrait of myself in my wedding gown. Ok...stop the cheese-ball jokes. I loved my dress and I am a southern belle ya know. We have "Bridal portraits" made in our fancy wedding dresses before we wed. It's a thing. But I really wanted a painted version. Yeah...that didn't work out so well for me and I ended up tossing it out eventually.
Painting strangers is still the best way to practice. I've got amazing new head shots of Mailey I might try this weekend. Or if we get another snow day or two. Yeah...they are predicting ice and snow coming our way. Great. We've already missed 6 days of school since January for weather/cold/snow/ice!
Sara is painted on an old cabinet door. Awhile back I found at our local Habitat store these cabinet panels for $2 each. No lie! I loved the recess and angle of this. Perfect for my little ladies. I intend to work magic on the edge tonight. I am thinking a quote about nature and motherhood? Oh and these lips are better. Next I'm going to attempt a blonde hair. Baby steps. Sara might get some texture or enhancement to her white gown. It's all learning curve!
