Almost Finished! I know Mike will be happy to hear that for sure. I have been slower with this piece as the heat in my painting studio is intense and my daughter is visiting this month from Florida (I think she brought the heat with her). Off to Crystal Beach in Canada this afternoon and maybe I will be able to finish the bust tonight. It is a beauty and the closer I get to finishing the piece, the happier I am with how it looks. After looking at the color combinations available on the Michael Miniatures web-site I think it might be fun to tackle a second version a bit later on. I still have the black ticking in the waist sash to paint and a few more tiny details and highlights before I can say it's done.
