For me, a record.
Count em! Eleven people in this family, and I was commissioned to do a portrait. I have never painted this many likenesses in one painting...a personal record.No pain, no gain. I'm painting in acrylic on a 22" by 28" canvas. Each face is approximately 3" from top of head to bottom of chin. The piainting is now about 85% completed. I work on it from half an hour to maybe two hours a day. With my busy teaching schedule, sometimes days to a week may go by before I work on it again. Now that we are getting closer to the holiday season, the family is getting anxious, and I will most likely finish it within the next week. What a job and what a great experience to have under my belt.
