First Oil Portrait Commission

 "Jason's Daughter" (oil, 10x8in)  sold
Here is my first commissioned portrait in oil (well, second actually, but the first was 24 years ago and it doesn't count!) I am so thrilled with oil paint I can barely contain myself! I could never have gotten this kind of detail in such a small face with pastel.
This portrait was all about the dress, which was the mother's when she was a child. It was a Mother's day gift from the dad (Jason) to his wife.
