I told you some time ago that I was busy with a portrait and this is the result. I found it very difficult to paint this little fellow, because it was the first baby I have ever painted.

The next picture is of the fabric page I just received from Wendy in Alabama, USA, thank you so much Wendy for the lovely dragonly. I have received 4 pages until now and they are all so different from each other, didn't realise that it was such a difficult subject to do. I love dragonflies, they are so delicate and colorful.

Hi Wilma, het zou leuk zijn als je ook een foto had geplaatst van de baby. Dan kun je zien of het portret ook gelijkend is he....maar het ziet er prachtig uit hoor. Ook je Dragonfly, gemaakt door Wendy. Ik moet nog aan mijn augustuspage beginnen...ik kan er maar geen "slok op krijgen"......

Wilma Your portrait of the baby is wonderful. I wish I had the ability to paint portraits so well. You are very talented and I am sure you will go on to paint many more just as good.

Wilma het portret is fantastisch!! Je hebt de baby geweldig goed geschilderd. Portretten zijn altijd moeilijk en een baby is extra moeilijk, zij hebben nog geen rimpels en echte "trekjes".
Ik ben er weg van en dat zullen de ouders van dit kindje ook zijn!
