Had a great Valentines Day weekend! My special "friend" :) hehehe lol.. came and visited for a couple days. His last day here [yesterday] was spent posing for me so I could paint his portrait. It his hard to tell what Beaux [that is his name] is holding in his lap, it is a weasel that he got for me this past Christmas! :) I really have not painted portraits since freshmen year... and still those weren't really "portraits"...so this is is my first jab at a real portrait. I am really happy with how it turned out, and want to paint more portraits of my friends here in NYC befor I move away in June... something to remember everyone by and hang on my wall. :)
