In the end, it’s all in the details: the eyes, her mouth, the teeth (finally!), the hint of a dimple high on her cheek and even the setting are what make the portrait Mila. It’s important to know when you’re finished with a painting…enough to call it done. Believe me, I could obsess over the portrait, but now that I can see MGee, sitting on the window seat in Lasa’s room, with pillows behind her and her face lit up with glee (as usual, I might add—she is a happy girl) on her first birthday, I’m satisfied. Actually, I’m pretty pleased that I’ll be able to look at the painting in Florida this winter, when I’m not a seven minute drive away from seeing my girls, and be reminded of her joy.
Lovely! Will enjoy seeing it in person when we cross the state to visit with you this winter. You are such a talented little sister!
