PORTRAITS







































The three grandkids and what I came up with.

I need more practice on people!  The only one that doesn't look stiff is the one of Jocelyn at the end - colorful but maybe too colorful?  

It was Sweetie's idea to take the portraits to show the girls when we were out shopping Sunday and they loved them all.  Except Alaina wants some color behind her, more like Jocelyn's portrait.  

I'll get in some more practice and try the new ones from freehand drawings - and then present them (or these) to the parents for an extra Christmas present.

I don't know the kids, but it looks to me like you got plenty of personality into these portraits - the hardest thing to be both accurate and free with!

Does Jocelyn look like Jerry? Or do my eyes deceive me? I think these are fabulous, Rhonda!!

Thanks so much, Sadami, Carol, Cathy and Sherry. Sherry, Jerry's youngest daughter looks like him and the two girls are her daughters so there is some resemblance, I know. Good eye!

I don't think that Jocelyn's portrait is too colorful, all of them are really nice.
