"Ali with a Rose" Female portrait painting from life

9 x 12"
oil on canvas

Another go at this lovely pose. I was floundering around with the likeness a little bit in the beginning. It looked exactly like any one of my failed self-portrait attempts (they occur periodically, and never turn out well enough to keep), but then I found her! None of you would know if I didn't capture the likeness, but the challenge of getting it right is part of my fun.

I know! I can vouch for the likeness - it's right on! It's an exquisite painting, Sarah - just beautiful.

Thanks, Sue - I know, I shouldn't have said NONE of you could vouch for the likeness! I appreciate you saying that!
