I enjoy the challenge of sketching a character and especially of painting children for they are honest in their expressions and reactions. A recently attempted portrait gave me great pleasure despite the frustration, at times, in trying to achieve the child’s personality from a single photo. All was good in the end as the siblings immediately recognised who was in the picture and both parents were most appreciative of the gift. Sometimes words of appreciation are all the payment you need when creating from the heart.
“Thank you, Terese. I cannot express effectively the joy your work is bringing, and will continue to bring to our household. Just beautiful!”
