Hi Tracie - I just now opened the DSFDF blog & your painting was the first to display! Well, you did a really good job on Ms Noe's portrait! :-) Love the lights & darks and colors.

This challenges WAS a lot of fun, wasn't it? Can't wait til next year! But those challenging challenges in between will certainly keep me on my toes.

Wishing you & your family the Merriest Christmas ever,

Hello Tracie,
Your portrait has a sense of joy, the beautiful dark shadows frame her face wonderfully. Not only do I love your portrait, but I love your take on Ida Noe who? Perhaps she will identify herself, as my fella identified himself. Thank you for visiting my blog, I'll be back again to see what else you're painting. Take care.
