Deanna in the garden

i don’t really paint people i personally know

i am usually inspired by photography and fashion pictures from magazines

but, when my friend Deanna posted a self portrait of herself on facebook, my first thought was “wow” and my second thought was “painting”

the image stayed with me for a while and i just couldn’t wait to get it on canvas

wednesday was the day

i’m really happy with this piece

i didn’t give it too much thought. i just kind of went for it

i’m also super happy that this is my third painting this year and we are in the third month

if i do a painting a month, that will be great!

what do you think? creative criticism always welcome
