Wow, this is cool. Nice concept, and lovely technique! :)

By the way, how do you get your edges so neat? I have trouble with that...

The line edges I just usually use a sharpie and then go over them again with painting with a small script brush. It works!

Excellent execution and work and theme.
I think that undertaking a painting with a mirror is an expert technique, because you have to view things in your mind from two different positions at once. With awesome skills like this...are you a spy?

AH! That is my favorite Rockwell painting. Now it's got Molly in it! Seriously—I know how hard it is to emulate Norman Rockwell's work, and I think you did a pretty good job while still retaining your own personal style.

It's gorgeous.

Good times, seeing these faces made pertinent again-- it's enough to make you wish Molly's Mom would've let her take that Laura Dern role in Blue Velvet and do the Edie Sedgewick biopic instead of one more movie with Andrew McCarthy...
The color choices and the grace with which each detail's been rendered here is just astonishing, and a real inspiration to see...

Wow!! Very classic, "serious" feel to this piece. :heart: the reds, greens, and browns--they add to said classic-ness.

The little touches make my eyes drool--the slight glare along the mirror's left edge, and the glow on the floor in front... brilliant. (Love the doll too, in all it's dolly-creepiness ;))

I want to own this one!! :love:

This is great. the colors are amazing, and the girl's expresion is priceless. it's crazy looking back at Rockwell's work and looking into yours. Somehow it makes you wonder..
have a nice day.
