Here is my final version of Rhonda's portrait for the wcW Artist's Faces project for February. If you remember, Rhonda had her hairdresser put in some multicolored stripes as an April Fool's joke on her husband.

As usual, there are a few things that I should have done differently, and will watch for next time I do a portrait; but I don't hate this overall. I missed getting the mischievous glint she had in her eyes, but at least it vaguely resembles her and hope she will be happy with it.

LOVE IT! Thanks so much - I am honored you painted me :)
Would you mind if I post this in my picture spot for a while (with your name as artist)?

It was my pleasure to do it and even more of a pleasure that it turned out recognizeable as you! I have been holding my breath since Sunday when I posted this and that is a long time to hold one's breath! Glad you approve and, of course it okay for you to post it on your blog. I am honored that you want to.

This is awesome, Susan - and I think you DID get that mischievous glint in her eyes. Love those hair stripes. What a fun painting!
