Toughest Critic

I have always been my own toughest critic. No matter what new thing I decide to dabble in, there is a great big chance that the first try at it will end up in the trash. However....

Once in a very rare while.....

I get it on the first try...Yay!

It's a portrait of surrealist artist Salvador Dali that I painted on canvas. It was a gift for my daughter.

The tough critic in me still thinks I could have done it better...But then again, it's not too shabby for my first try...Plus my daughter loved it and I am thrilled about that. Hope you like it too.


Thank you all for stopping by to visit with me.
Hope you come and visit again soon.
Wishing you a fantabulous day.






**A little note for all you sweet blogging friends who left sweet Birthday wishes for my daughter...A great big THANK YOU from the both of us.**




Hugs and Kisses,

Pero que pasada Ana!! Te quedó perfecto! Si no fuera porque eres tu, diría que es algún autoretrato desconocido!! Me encanta Dalí y supongo que tu hija estaría feliz.
Por cierto, felicidades para ella en su cumple. Tienes una hija realmente preciosa!!! y un besito a Cookie también.
Besos y Felicidades a las dos.
