Portrait by Betty Burchfield

Portrait by Betty Burchfield, oil, copyright

Photo for portrait

Art News from Ascribing Artist Betty Burchfield:

This painting was more fun than a barrel of monkeys to paint. These two are so mischievous. Who would ever have thought that this photo could be a painting!
These are the changes made to the painting. I love special requests and I love to make people happy.

Special Request: Change background.
Straighten Doug's shirt and change to burgundy. Make eyes a wee bit more open.
Put Charlotte to the front of Doug. Change color of her tee shirt to Hunter Green.
Make Charlotte's eyes a little bigger and add eyelashes and eye shadow.
Place Doug's hand on Charlotte's arm.
Vignette picture.

I also love to see a husband who follows Jesus' teaching...... "The husband is to love his wife as Jesus loved the church." (As you can tell by the painting and Charlotte's tee shirt.... Doug takes good care of her. )

"The wife is to be submissive to her husband." ( I think Charlotte is working on that).

God gives us all a talented gift. What we do with that gift is our gift to Him. By making people happy, is one of my ways of giving back to him.

God is so good.
