Thanks to all who gave input regarding the background for this portrait!!  i chose the blue/gray to complement and bring out her skin tones.

Thanks Jim..I've been dwelling on this one and wishing I'd had a better play of warm/cool variation in her skin. I was so nervous because I'd never done a commissioned oil portrait before..only graphite. This was nerve wracking!! I learned a lot and am going to practice in hopes of another!!!

I miss this one...  (I've been AWOL for a while). 

It's STUNNING!!!  Not only REAL, it's just beautiful!

Thank you my friend! I'm happy to say they loved it! The little girl was excited to see it and said, 'that's me!".. Needless to say I was very pleased:)
