Portrait Beginning for Today

 You never know who will just reach out and steal your photo off of Facebook or the internet…however, I know this person.  She is the daughter of my sister-in-law and friend, Andrea – she won’t mind.  I liked the intense light that was coming in a restaurant window.  So I thought, how do you paint this without that stark white light…so you see where I started…A long way to go….it’s just the beginning, Day One.  Onward.

And what a day one! Pattie this looks done. There's a great warm feel to it already. What's happening at the bottom?

Thanks Vern, she is a great warm person! I wondered about leaving the bottom loosely done, like it is..what do you think?

This looks well done. Give the dogs a head scratch for me.
