Since this portrait has arrived safely at my sister-in-law's house in time for her birthday, I can show it to the world.

This is the project that's been taking all my time lately! I was working from my late father-in-law's Navy portrait. This is a companion piece to the portrait in beads I did of my late mother-in-law, last year.

My sister-in-law was surprised. I think she likes it. :-)

John Botts Quote!

"The interest in color is always present. A simple comment might be that where color seems least present, or most lacking in intensity, one finds more color."

A quote from John Botts, the artist who I swear kept me alive when I was a teenager, and who I am only now beginning to appreciate.
