Hello Mary, enjoying your artwork. Portraiture in particular. I identify with your challenges to paint, and then consider oneself an artist. My own story is similar. Once we've allowed that, then we give ourselves permission to grow into our talent. And after that permission is given, our artist muse becomes  insatiable...demanding growth and outlet, yes? Hard taskmaster, lol.

Mary, I understand you so well. Long time ago, I had no teacher but painted a boy by copy what the photo showed me. I was so frastrated by his strawhat as there are so many tiny details. I did not know where to looking for help. So I put it away for 3monthes before I struggled on it again. Only painters know much work to get a painting done.

Paintings can change right before your eyes by just adding something else.  Tricky little suckers.  LOL  I know your brother will be so happy to see you have painted him something.
