12x16 oil on canvas
Having been working in a style very different from what I am accustomed to, and having wiped a number of canvases in a row, I felt it was time to use one of those canvases for a portrait, going back to the familiar, just throwing it down to get past discouragement, which is invading from other areas in my life, as well. This young woman is from an old black and white photo; she is likely long since dead. But she once was young and beautiful and full of hope.
I guess I'm ready for some rain, for a change. Bring on the grey.
