Portrait of A*.

Sometimes in the life of an artist there comes a time when they just have to terrify passing civilians by asking, “Do you mind if I paint you?” For extra points, you can then tell them why, but that usually

Still Life, Roses and Reflections: Day 9a

Day 10 was a half day, so filed under 9a, not 10. I did other things in the studio as well, after three or four hours of work on this. I am now on the top layer, which means I’m
