Me and my grand daughter .

What a lovely portrait, Sylvia. I know the feeling about the self doubt! But you did a great job here.

It's great Sylvia! Much harder to do this in somebody else's style. I love those little fat legs.

I love this Sylvia

Brings a big smile to my face Sylvia, Big strong arms to take good care.

Wonderful painting full of character, Sylvia - banish the self-doubt!

Awww I love it Sylvia, your love shines through, a great one!

Alan, Michael,Carolyn and Margaret ..I really appreciate all of your comments, not too sure about the Miriam Margolyes look alike Margaret...doesn't she fart a lot ? ..😉
