100 OIL PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Maddie, 62/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art
The minute I saw this photo, I KNEW I had to paint her. Not only is she just adorable, but the reference photo is just the kind I like with the strong light/shadow pattern on her sweet face.
I love her hairdo, but was a little worried if I could pull it off. It wasn't as hard as I thought and I think it turned out very well.
This painting is sold.
Today is the last day for voting on portraits 51-60. I need more votes to break a tie, so email your choice to firstname.lastname@example.org. THANKS!
The patients: Mark ( the donor) went back home to San Jose, and is rapidly returning to normal. Morris (the recipient) is having trouble with all the anti-rejection drugs. They're hard on his stomach and his stomach hurts more than his incision. They adjusted his meds and now he's doing a little better. He's keeping some food down at least.
