Painted & Stitched Portraits

Taylor & Taylor

I finished the painting and the stitching. I stitched the outline on the machine using black thread. I like using the Golden acrylics...it only takes a tiny drop to go a long way. Now, I have to decide what fabric background to put them on and then I will probably add some hand stitching or beads. I thought the pose of Taylor beside her portrait was cute. She seemed to like it. Now she is asleep...probably dreaming about being a blue cat.

Thanks for the nice comments! Emma is hard to photograph, as she moves so quickly, but they are the best models!
