Must be a REALLY GOOD FRIEND!
This is for a really good friend as I do not usually do formal portraits because they are hard and I do not do them enough to be really good at them.! My hat is off to portrait artists and I would love to be able to paint like John Singer Sargent (one of my idols, if you can be an idol after you are dead???). I worked on this, on and off for two weeks and it is only about 8x10. All in all, I have to admit I am proud of it as it looks just like her and I am basically happy with it. Will I do another any time soon? NO.....
So, in 30 some years I have done one formal portrait and one landscape. Maybe I need to expand my horizons.....hmmmm...nah...di
