Very nice portraits Sheila. I like the use of a colored ground, it really gives the faces a three dimensional effect.

Sheila...my kids love it and told me to give ya a big hug when I see ya. Tish told me not to tell anyone that the picture was taken about 35 years ago, so I won't.

You did such a great job on this! It looks JUST like the reference. I like the quick look but you still captured the features perfectly.
Way to go!
