My parent's and sister are up for the Holiday. I decided to take a small break from my self portraits to give painting others a try.

So I painted my mom and dad while my sister and husband competed at scrabble. This painting took about an hour and a half, which to me does not seem like a lot of time. I feel like I need much more time to really polish a piece. I don't start until after 8, which gives me about two hours start to finish before I am really tired. Sitting still for the subject is also difficult and we had a long day before this. But the biggest problem with painting other people, they never like how they look.
