I feel like I could ramble for a long time about this painting, so I'll leave it alone and just say: I am fond of it & here it is.
I thought you might get portrait hypnosis, so I thought I'd share something more scenic.
Thank you for all your kind words about the new work! It's been a really nice rabbit hole to fall down, and I don't plan on coming out of it for a good little while.
Happy Weekend to you!
