"Speechless"

That was Kelle's comment when I emailed her the final photos of her finished paintings this morning. I told her I wanted her to see pictures of the finished painting before I posted them on the blog for all to see. Arrangements are being made to hang them in her husband's absence on Saturday so he will see them on the family room wall when he arrives home Saturday night. How I'd love to see the look on his face!!!



Now that I know Kelle has seen the photos, now you can see them too. For those of you who have not been following along with this painting's progress on the blog, here's a brief recap in pictures:







The blank canvases, 3 of them, each 24"x48"






The pencil lines you can barely see...





Background....






And more background....






Finally on to Steele...




and hair on Frank and Skylar...







Steele is finished and on to Frank and Skylar...






Who knew Frank's jacket and jeans would be so challenging??





Finished Father and Son...





On to finish Skylar....









And the finished project (except for drying...)





Happy Father's Day, Frankie! Enjoy your wife's gift!

You did fantastic Tammy. I'm really impressed as I find it so hard to paint people. I also like the way you documented your progress. It's a wonderful gift.

One of these days, you, Erica and I will need to meet at Chiro Java!
