So I sent this to the client and she texted back “Wow!!!  Looks great!  Fabulous!!” What a relief!

Thanks Linley - is it his right nostril or the nostril on our right side looking at the painting?

Mysti - you’re such a sweetheart!! And an excellent detective! Sure wish the hotel had sent this to me in the beginning!
Cheers,
Sharon

I am not surprised your client is happy.  It looks great!   :clap:

I wish I had time earlier to search for you.  I found one more photo that shows the beard detail a little better.  I can’t upload here because it does not say it it public domain, but here is a link to it.

Thanks Mysti! And thanks to everyone for their wonderful suggestions (especially Kathy and Val) and all of your support.

Now that Mr Hopkins is done, it’s time to work on Mr Smith. I’ll post that photo tomorrow. Need to just enjoy the moment of this gentleman tonight.

Hugs to all of you!!
Cheers,
Sharon

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Sharon the suspense is over and you did a wonderful job on Mr. Hopkins as I knew you would.  It is just so interesting to watch you through the stages of your commissions from start to finish and you never disappoint us.  Great news that the Hotel love it, we are so proud of you. :flowers:

His right, our left (nostril, that is!) But since no-one else has remarked on it, maybe it's my imagination?

 :thankyou: Gita and EmmaLee! And I give so much of the credit to my PB Family - everyone we guided me through this process so beautifully!

Regarding the frame - the hotel has a frame they want me to use. I haven’t seen it yet. But the good news is they will get it to me and I can have my framer frame the painting properly. They will also give a quote to have a frame created for the painting to give them an option. So stay tuned!
Cheers,
Sharon
