Wow, can you believe it? After a lot of poking from family and friends for YeArS, a painting finally came off the easel.
This is not Hazel but is very similar to her and I had to paint it.
This is the reference photo. It was posted copyright free for any member on Wetcanvas. As you can see for the painting, I cropped it in. the following images are pictures of the piece as it evolved.
Thanks for looking!!!
