This is a 1/4 sheet painting of a couple who were part of the crowd at the 2008 NW Folklife festival. I found her face intriguing and his a little unsettling. Her outfit begged to be painted.

A great work!
I can understand your desire to paint this woman… yes her outfit very paintable.
I like your treatment of the background too.
You keep getting better Mimi, I was having a conversation with a portrait artist here Susan Cesarini, who paints in oils, she said discussing paintings and journeys in painting… “Your best painting is always ahead of you!” and I will never forget these words.
Each time I see one of your paintings I’m excited to see the developments and am anxious to see the next one, for you get better with each Brushstroke!
Wow!!! mimi, I do find her face quite interesting and love how you painted her hair… Definitely like her clothes as well… Very nice CLAP CLAP
He almost seems like a bodygaurd of the sweet and gentle “queen!!”
