My portrait studies continue and I am encouraged to be seeing progress! This portrait is of Emmie, a very strikingly beautiful woman that I have been wanting to paint for a long time. When the scheduled model didn't arrive, Emmie agree to sit for us. I was elated!
I feel so fortunate to have so many good artists as friends, teachers and mentors. It is so important to keep one another encouraged, motivated and challenged. I treasure each and every one of them and each and every one of YOU who share this journey with me!
