  5. Hi Jade & Brenda, thanks heaps :)!

    The flushed cheeks are water soluble oil pastels - just love the mixed media aspect of these paintings :)

  6. Love how she came out! Very pretty!!! and no it's not weird to turn down commissions! I learned a long time ago that if I force myself to do something that my heart is not in then the end result is not as good and I'm mad at myself for agreeing to something that I didn't want to do in the first place!...so you did the right thing :o)) Michele

  7. Hi Michele - ditto - I knew I would be under pressure to paint them and the kids are on school holidays now so I basically just decided "not this time" and I am happy with that decision :) - cheers Val xo
