Janey

The lady that commissioned this portrait wanted to combine what I used to do (paint whimsical, sassy girls from my imagination) with what I do now (paint portraits from photographs).  I tried to tell her no, I couldn't pull that off, but for some reason she had faith in me and wouldn't take no for an answer.  I'm so glad for that because this was a lot of fun and made me realize I can paint portraits that aren't exactly like the photo, or in this case, nothing like it.  Yay for new ground!
