She Shines from Within

I bought a bottle of wine today. First alcohol I've bought in many, many years. I don't drink for a variety of reasons and this wine was to be used in a recipe. So, I bought the cheapest white wine I could find, of course. And you know what? They didn't even card me. Frankly, I think it would have been really nice of the young lady to have done a courtesy carding, but no.

Little guy: "You're kidding, right, mom?"

Big guy: "No way I would've carded you, mom."

So glad I taught my boys to be honest with me.

I finished this piece...and I titled it! The name didn't come to me until after I'd signed it. Here's the completed piece and just a couple of stages leading up to that. I was so into painting that I forgot to take more photos.

"She Shines from Within"

I added many more details to her face and
filled in the background with more color.

This is where I was just beginning to work on
her eyes. I also added some elements to her dress.
This is a project in an online art class I'm taking. I highly recommend it!
