kayla 5.5x7

This was a very enjoyable painting to make. It's really the first time that I've had a conversation with one of my subjects, at least one where they talked back. Looking at it now, there are lots of things that I wish I'd handled a little differently but I can try them the next time. I now have a pretty long list of students who are willing to sit for me. I think they were all pretty impressed that I didn't have to resort to my "flesh" colored paint. I really want to thank Kayla for being so patient (next time I hope she doesn't drink a Rock Star before we start). I couldn't ask for a better model.

What a beautiful girl. I think she looks similar to Angelina Jollie. Striking.
