Edie finished her wonderful portrait of her mom. You can feel the gentle personality of Edie’s mom radiating from her hooked piece…

Whereas, my Dad was a bit of a goof and I hope that comes through in my piece which is finished except for the hmmm, finishing 🙂 . As you can see, Dad started out as a much bigger piece but halfway through I realized that I did not need all that extraneous info…what was important was the expression on his face and too much of the body and background would have taken the focus off his face. At the suggestion of Karen, Dad will hang off a wooden spoon in my kitchen where he can watch my terrible cooking efforts – dad was THE cook in the family – sadly I did  not  inherit his amazing  cooking  skills…

  4. Love it Loretta! Fantastic job. Both portraits ❤️ Something must have rubbed off – you are a great cook!

  5. These two portraits are amazing. It must have required concentration to do this kind of work. Too timid to try. Maybe should seek out a workshop.

    • Loretta’s classes/workshops are amazing , Loretta is very hands on and the perfect leader to get you on your way. There is always a ray of sunshine around her and it rubs off on everyone around her!
