Day 3, sweet

For the 29 faces in September challenge...
Oh how fun it is to have a holiday... but not when mama wants to paint! After this long weekend, I'll pick up the pace, at least for this piece.

And how sweet it is to paint a girl? I simply love it. Sugar and spice and all that ;o)

This is how far I am in the portrait. The lighting is horrible, but I had to take a picture when I could, you know how it goes some days:



Thanks for comments! ♥
It is not too late to join the challenge! Just add your name to the Linky or join the FB group; post in the public FB page as well. Make as many faces as you can, the thing is to have fun and get to meet cool artsy people.
