Arto! Bravo! Bravo!
Please don't call yourself amateur..to paint as well as this is to deserve praise.
To capture this expression on canvas is as good as it gets!
John Singer Sargent would be proud
of this painting!

Thank you very much Bill! I always seem to find some elements I could've done better in the painting. I sure still am an amateur, I had to scrape the paint off three times before I got the face right. It was a struggle and still the likeness is not spot on. More practice needed...
