What was your inspiration?
This one has a bit of a sad story. I never knew this young woman. She was a friend of a friend. Sadly she passed away suddenly at the very young age of 33 or so. She has left behind two young boys. Her friend asked me do this portrait -- all I had to go on was a fairly grainy photocopied funeral program. I hope I did her justice. Her friend is having this framed and giving it to the family. I sure hope that I did her justice.
What are you most proud of?
Working from a fairly poor copy of something and having to make adjustments (such as the angle of the head and the hat).
