'Carol'

Oil on 12"x16" panel. 'Carol' is a commission I recently completed.
I felt honored to be asked to paint my friend's mom. Carol is a very lovely lady and as I painted her portrait it felt like the painting wanted to be created and all I had to do was hold the brush. It's not usually like that, so I'm very grateful when it happens. I told my husband  sometimes I get lucky in painting and he replied "the more you paint the better your luck will be."

This is really, really good, Rachel. Just praise and more praise today. Wish I'd have thought of it.
Merry Christmas and all that,
