welcome gift or creepy?
Just for fun and experience, I tried to paint a portrait of my niece from a photo she had online.
It was a good exercise, and I learned from it; my boys talked me into giving it to my niece for her graduation (along with something else too!). Now i look at it and I wish I hadn't given it too her. There is nothing worse than a bad portrait that you feel stuck with because it was done by a relative......sigh...live and learn I guess.
