Acrylic on Panel - 6 x 6 inches

My friends post photos of themselves as children. Sometimes I download them, thinking I'll paint them. Today I did paint one. I color corrected the source first, but I think that took out the charming tone of the old and faded print. I just didn't think I should try to emulate that in a painting. That's something that photo realists like doing, and I am no photo realist.
