Finally finished!


A little truth about myself is that I'm such a self-doubter and that I take an unbelieveable amount of time with paintings like this. I actually started this one after christmas and it sat for months as I looked at that face and tried to decide how I would complete her look. So here it is...I'm calling it finished...it's in my etsy shop...and I titled it, "Girl with the auburn hair".

hi maRie!

She's lovely. I particularly like the wisps are hair along her bangs and the sides of her face. Nice touch.
