I was fortunate to have had the chance to put this portrait aside in order to work on Christmas orders. I have a very patient client and am so thankful for her understanding! Since I am caught up somewhat on my work, I have decided that, since there is so little work (relatively speaking!) left to do to on this portrait, it deserves to be finished. And so, here is the latest update I have so far. Let's hope on the next update the shoulder area will be filled in and the customer will have approved her painting!
