Very beautiful, I especially like the one with Kermit and the one with glasses.
Great idea to propose to fb friends .... and also to prove to themselves
Thank you all. I appreciate the kind words.
It was an interesting experiment, and including the initial 4 "special" portraits I ended up painting 10 facebook portraits in 12 months. It was good practice, even if finding suitable photos to work from was sometimes a hassle.
I'll post the rest if anyone is interested.
You've got mountains of awesomeness going on here. These are fantastic.
