PAINT PARTY FRIDAY

Good morning Peeps - it's nearly the weekend again so I hope many of you are looking forward to some crafting time :-)
Here is my entry this week for PAINT PARTY FRIDAY.
This little chap is Billy and he was done as a surprise for a friend of mine for her 50th Birthday. Billy was at her party too so everyone could see the actual 'model' as it were :-D I also photographed the painting and made her a matching card. I gave her that first and she loved it but when she opened the painting parcel she just cried :-)

Finished painting was 12" x 15" and I used Gouache.
