Painting... Finished!



I think I'm pleased with the results!  I put a few drops of gold paint into the varnish to give it this shimmery effect, and I love that.  I'm not necessarily thrilled with the way the baby turned out.  She had that expression in the photo, and when I tried to paint her smiling, I just could visualize it... so she's stuck looking not too impressed.  Anyways, for one of the first portraits that I've ever done, I think I did alright!
