Well here it is!

I finished them! Hooray! And just in time too, since I'm heading back to TO on Friday for Christmas, and they really needed to be done before then. This is the second painting I did of my Mom, since the first one really didn't look any good after I was done my Dad's! But I think they turned out pretty darn good, if I do say so myself. I'm pretty sure she's going to cry, so that should be fun ;)

Dave at work also gave me a good idea! I'm going to print out the roughs (smaller than the paintings) and give them to my parents as well. I think they'll really like that too.

This is them both together, to give you an idea of what they'll look like on a wall!

Anywho, it's Christmas time so Merry Christmas Everyone, and a very Happy New Year to you and your loved ones!

Hello everyone!

Well, I'm sure you are all dying to know what is going on with those paintings for my parents, and I am here to update you!! I am (I think) done my Dad's portrait! AND, get this, I did it this weekend! The whole painting of it. So I'm a little happy with myself! I think I've refined the technique I was going for, making all the mistakes with my Mom's portrait (which I started first, and am still not done). So now it's back to Mom's to see if it'll turn out as good as my Dad's.

Let me know what you think! Thanks for all the comments everyone, keep 'em comin'!
