Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. This was done at the request of a co-worker. The bride was ill and battling terminal cancer. This was supposed to be a gift for the bride but unfortunately she never was able to see it. Instead this piece was a memorial for her and given to the groom. This was my first portrait I had ever done.

What are you most proud of? This was my 1st portrait. Done mostly in Acrylic with a little of mixed media. It is done on a 12*12 canvas and costumed framed under museum glass

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take it slow when starting out a piece. Put thought into it not only with regards to the media you will use but also with the emotion of the subject matter. Most of all you have to enjoy what you are doing.
