Who's that Lady?

They have arrived!!  Yahoo......I always worry!  Let me introduce you to Lady #34, Maria #2 from Australia.  (Not to be confused with the original and imaginary Lady #4 Maria, or Lady #31 Maria #1 from Australia.) I'm thinkin' there must be lots of lovely Maria's in Australia, huh?  I bet I haven't seen the last of them yet.........at least I hope not!  So without further adoo:

And here is the original photo that she sent to me:


Then, I grabbed this photo off her blog.  And you can read there what the unpackaging looked like.  (All ladies come in this same package.)

Maria with herself

Then, we have another lovely lady from the same country.  In fact, they are from the same area in Australia......if you can believe?  I wonder if they know each other???  Please meet Anita.  Anita is Lady #35.

Anita wanted her portrait on a neutral background rather than the normal white to match her home decor.  And here is the original photo that Anita sent to me:


So there you have it!  A few more lovely ladies and believe it or not, I'm working on a few more.  Yeah!!  I really love making ladies!  It's almost a challenge for me to see how alike I can get the drawing and then when I get the colors on the background, and all the embellishments sewn on, everything just seems to come alive!  It almost saddens me to send them off.....

More next time................until then, have some fun!  And if you live around me, stay warm.  Our high is supposed to be 7F today.  Brrrrr!!!!!

I hope your ladies were sent off to warmer climates! We are sunny and low 60s today. Do you want me to tell you more? lol Ah, two more lovely ladies joining the ranks! There's going to be a book of portraits someday.

More beautiful ladies Carol.

I think it is probably good that you send them off, it could get a bit disturbing having them all in one place looking at you.

Mega Ditto what Karen just said above me! Your range of talent just blows me away, Carol.

Every single portrait is different yet all have similar characteristics. So fun to see each one with it's owner!

BRAVO!!
