Thanks so much for your wonderful comments, Laurel - it was fun to paint her, although you know I had my frustration moments, because you listened to me crab about it!

In my zeal at studying this Grand Dame, I neglected to favorite her...and she is truly a favorite. Beautiful!

Conni, what a BEAUTIFUL portrait! The textures of shadow beneath the straw hat are sheer mastery.The softness of her gray hair and ear lobe yield in contrast to the more chiseled aspects of aging; however, you have found the way to elevate the stiffened posture of aging to a “regal Bearing”. Your portraits (whether of people or animals) capture both “personality” and spirit and that, is a gift! So well painted. BRAVA!
