  7. I love the greens in this and especially how you worked some rgeen tones into the face! A charming, cheery portrait.

    So, you lived near Genesee Country Museum as a child? Where are you from? I'm from Hilton, north of Rochester, NY.

  8. Thanks Kim!

    I lived in Scottsville, NY, directly south of Hilton (on the opposite side of the city) and one town over from GCV. I went to Wheatland-Chili HS and RIT for college.
