You are very kind, roxygrl. Fortunately, she and her Mom liked it too and it hangs at their house. Thanks very much!

As big as that smile is I would bet she has a great personalty!! And is that a sparkle in her eyes? I think so.

She does have a great personality and is very outgoing. Hanna is a gem who loves everything horses.

Thanks very much, Randyz. After 26 yrs of trying all mediums, I have primarily gone to acrylics and pastels. Oils are supposed to be the special medium, but they never looked any better than my acrylics. So I got away from the smells and slow dry time with oils. Yes, skin tones are always a challenge and I'm still learning different mixes for them. Keep your paintings going!
