Default Kat, Journeywoman Archivist

This is Kat Journeywoman Archivist and her Firelizard Amara.







This is our lovely MoM member Kat, who has been very patient while she waited for me to finish her portrait. I am very pleased to do this portrait for her and hope that you all enjoy it....Maelin

Good heavens, what a lovely portrait. It radiates such health and joy! And you also mnagaed to find yet another nice pose for a firelizard, although I assume Amara really needs that tail around the arm

WOW! That portrait looks so much like the woman that was the photographer for our wedding!

And this is going to sound odd, but I love the shading on the firelizard's butt

Has Amara just eaten Kat? Because her belly's quite pudgy looking right now.

(Or perhaps I've just spent too much time around my over-athletic, stretchy looking blue to remember what a normal firelizard's supposed to look like...)

*Dizzy zooms in, meeps admiringly at Amara*

Since shew's a gold, perhaps she is in what used to be known as "an interesting condition"?

@ Kat, this is what I saw in the photo you sent me(minus the glasses that is),a very joy filled lady...in a great pose. I am so very glad that you are happy with it.

@Lily, Thank you so much for the compliments. After it was all finished with Kat's portrait, Amara looked as if she was measuring up whomever Kat was smiling at, at the gather...you know how picky those Gold's can be...LOL!!!

@Tresa, Thank you very much...and a Gold is what I was asked for...!!!

@Sammy, I'm glad that you like this one... Thank you Little Lady.OH and that isn't Amara's tummy....butt it is her bottom!!! Just ask Spiff...

@Hans, Thank You...Kat does seem to me a very joy filled lady. The photo she sent me had her posed perfectly for my newest little creation...glad you like it.

@Apo, As I said to Hans...Kat does seem to be a person full of life. She seemed to need a necklace that would go with her other gather finery. Glad you like it!!!

@Edi,Thank You so much, I think I should go into the jewelery design business, as often as I get compliments on it...LOL

@Alana, Thank you for you lovely compliment.

@Sandi, Thank you also for your lovely compliments...I am so glad that you enjoyed it.

@Spiff, Thank you so very much for that nice comment about my butt( )I try to keep fit.. ..all kidding aside.....
CONGRATULATIONS ON YOU AND KALINA'S WEDDING

@Phoenix, Thank you I am so happy that you liked it...yours won't be so frilly...promise... !!!

@Lindsey, Thank you for the lovely compliments...and yes I thought she was very lovely too.

@Jax, thank you so much...I am glad you enjoyed it.

Just home from a trip to see my grandsons and thought I'd check the site real quickly, boy am I glad I did! This is another wonderful portrait! I like the simplicity of this as much as the detail on others! Kat and Amara are wonderful subjects and so well done! Congrats Kat and Maelin!
