Further progress on Mother and Son portrait.

Well, the photo looks rather washed out and lavender where there is none, perhaps due to taking it in the evening inside with florescent lights, but the painting is pleasing me so far. Still much to do. I'll move her shoulder up by a quarter of an inch and darken her hair... it has more black with deep brown/red highlights, and the cleft in her chin isn't quite so prominent, although there. I haven't painted the son's collar or tie yet and much needs refining. But it's coming along. My dad has supplied the title, LIKE MOTHER, LIKE SON, which I love.

San Antonio's freeze has melted and we're all breathing a sigh of relief.

Wrap up warmly, Folks!
