I'm celebrating a fantastic school year that finished just a few hours ago. (In case you don't already know, I teach three and four year olds with disabilities...and I love it!) I came home after work, took a nap, and then finished this painting. I have a thing when I'm painting faces. I like to finish the eyes early on. I feel like they give me guidance in the painting process. Almost every time I end up changing the eyes significantly before the painting is finished, but with this one the eyes felt like they were speaking from such a place of truth, that they remained unchanged as the rest of the painting evolved. Love this woman for her strength.
