Best Friends Forever

A friend of mine asked if I would be willing to paint a miniature portrait for her collection of postcard-sized works. After I said I'd attempt the challenge, she gave me a photo of another friend of hers and asked if I could work it in. Thank goodness for Photoshop! After cutting and pasting and playing with the composition on my computer, this is what I came up with as the final painting. It's very difficult to paint from a photo unless I have gotten to know the person! I hope I did them justice in this tiny size. The actual size is 4" x 6".
