This is great Chris! I never heard of Tamara but when I looked her up, I saw her wonderful deco paintings, and now Id like to do a version of one of hers called "Summer" or "Mother Superior". Very well done Chris! Regards...Joan

PLEASE help answer this... Should I leave it black and white or should I glaze this piece to look like an old photo? (Sepia toned)?
Very touching story and very sweet gesture of you. I've had several miscarriages and now have the five children ages 12-28. I really believe you will be over... view answer
