Dori in the 80's

After getting all frustrated over those piano keys, I felt like doing something fun. This is my sister when she was about 16. This really doesn't represent her well because she doesn't wear much make-up, is somewhat bookish and is now a doctor, but I always thought she looked so glamorous in this photo and thought it would be fun to paint. And it was, especially since I rocked out to my favorite 80's bands (The Smiths and The Cure) while I painted. I don't imagine it selling, I just figure this is one I did purely for my own enjoyment. I love my sister and I love the eighties so it was a great experience. I just hope she likes it.

Ackkk! Piano keys! What was I thinking? That's about the third time I've said that on this blog so I'm going to make a special effort to start thinking long and hard before deciding on a composition. I just hope all this pain and suffering is making me a better artist.

Girl and Butterfly

I felt like painting but didn't have a plan, so this one happened.
