It's been challenging finding time to paint during the summer, with no child care and traveling a lot. Every time I got into a groove with this one, it was time to take off somewhere. I guess all that waiting makes it all the more satisfying to finish, though. I really liked the colors and contrasting patterns in this one. Most of my portraits have a solid background, rather than actual scenery so this seemed refreshing. Btw, this is the younger sister of Ruby, who was one of my first portraits.
