This was not my finest hour. Denise brought a wonderful, colorful costume and took a very interesting pose--so interesting that I wanted to
move beyond the face and take advantage of the arms, legs, etc. Alas, I'm not very used to painting the whole figure any more. It threw me for a loop.
I sacrificed the chance for a good, life-sized portrait without even getting the whole figure in. Life-size seems to be my comfort zone.
