First paintings. . .finished. . .?

Letters to a friend who lives far away....she's finished...sort of... there are a few things that I'm not totally satisfied with...the envelopes should have been bigger...the outline of her face is wonky...(wonky being a speciality of mine)...and her stripey legs are not as stripey as I would have liked - I'm not happy with the painting of the legs...it's rubbish when you look up close... But from a distance, with my good eye closed... "It ain't half bad..." Anyhow she is how she is....in paint...I won't be chucking her in "File 13" = (the bin)...

On a totally different note..."Congratulations to the American Female Football Team" they beat France tonight...BoooooooHoooooo.... I have one very sad French Mr Hollywood....he's been campaigning for Female Football for years.... The French Girlies beat the English Girlies (Boohoo Me) during the week and now it's USA v Brazil in the final....   LOOK OUT BOYS....the Girlies are coming.....!!!!

You, my darling, are too stinking hard on yourself. I'm looking at her with both eyes open and I even double clicked to make her bigger. Wanna know what I see? A fantastic picture! I am so glad you're painting you're sweet little characters, they are too cute to not!

She is very sweet. No more rubbish talk. I'm with B on that. Mr H a women's soccer fan? He's a keeper! Xoxo. Terah

I find your style refreshing. There is nothing wrong with the legs. It is a delightful painting.

This is really lovely. It is very quirky and whimsical and that is close up too :)
