First Christmas for Cali

 Don't you just love those ears?  As you all know I adopted Cali 9 months ago and this will be her 1st Christmas with us.  We had a photo shoot of her sporting her new Santa dress.  She posed so  beautifully for my daughter staying perfectly still until she finished taking some photos.  I think she was a model before she was adopted!!.
I want to thank you all for the wonderful comments and support you have given me throughout the year...You all mean so much to me.!!   I've been so busy for the Holiday season so I will post again in January!!    I will be visiting my Aunt soon for her 104th birthday!!  Imagine!!Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!!!!

Lovely Lady

 This was my beautiful Mother-in-law when she was about 20 years old.   I fell in love with the reference picture when I first saw it.  It was a black and white photo but I chose to add a little color since she had such beautiful blue eyes.  She was born 1900 and my granddaughter Skye was born 2000 - 100 years later sharing the same birthdate...   I hope you like this pastel portrait....I enjoyed painting her so much.
