Palette Knife Portrait Painting

(Palette knife only- from start to finish) 
This was my very first attempt with palette knife painting, and it was incredibly challenging. There were tears, anxiety, and moments when I wanted to trash the entire project, but I didn't quit and stuck with it until the end knowing I'd benefit from the experience. Phew, I did it!

palette knife painting is extremely challenging especially if youre trying to capture the fine details of a portrait but you made this look SO so good. even the before looks beautiful but i can't believe how well you blended it all in the "after" piece!!! LOVE seeing creative work like this.

Less than a year ago, I became a homeowner of a beautiful, old Victorian built in 1870. A dream come true but recently a nightmare. This was a milestone in my life... and yet now something I'm asking anyone that can, to please help save it from repeated flooding and water damage. Unaware this was a past issue, I'm faced with devastating restoration costs in order to maintain the preservation and integrity of my home's internal and external structure. 
This past week, we received significant amounts of rainfall and the NWS issued flash flooding in this area. Because of untreated damage over the years before I lived here, rainfall continues to pour down/through parts of the roof and pipes as ground water surges in, flooding the inside of my home with 18-24 inches of water.
