It turns out that one of the local surgeons, Latya Lynn Naing, with the Myanmar mission last year is also an artist. I found out after we became Facebook friends. We decided we'd both paint a portrait of his adorable daughter and trade them. My painting is now finished and will [...]
I painted a portrait of this little Westie named Charlie as a surprise birthday gift from wife to husband. I think he liked it!
