When I saw this cover and this picture of Miranda done by Michelangelo Di Battista, I just knew I had to paint it. It's truly wonderful. I had real fun doing it too. The light hits her from the back so the shading on the face and other parts on her body is different from the usual. I love her dress and her hat and she's just soooooo pretty. I'm not sure why would I ever choose painting flowers already cut and dying in vases or some other still life if I can continue painting beautiful faces:)

Here's a third drawing from my Expressions series:
It's called Hmmm.... I hope you like this series because I have several more coming: Oops..., Mwah..., Eew..., Ooh La La... and whatever else might come to my mind between now and whenever.
I don't know how soon I'll get a chance to work on them though, because I'm getting kind of busy with Mother's Day orders. Can't really post those here either since they're going to be gifts:) Not complaining though, because I truly enjoy doing portraits. I guess people and animals are my thing. I just really don't care for flowers, fruit, landscapes, etc. Don't get me wrong, there are some gorgeous ones out there, I just enjoy doing life subjects and incorporating their energy and character in my art.

Less than a week and a new post? I have to say I'm proud of myself:) That's only because I've finished this painting yesterday and want to show it off:
It's Jennifer Aniston when she was featured on Harper's Bazaar cover last September. Here's the cover that I was working off:
I feel like I made the eyes a little too big but also like that made her look a little more beautiful so I'm keeping it the way it is and not changing anything.

Once again, I have not posted for over a month! Ouch! Has it really been that long?! WOW! Time flies when you're having fun. I've been gone for a little and then just really busy with stupid stuff like spring cleaning at home. At the same time I've been busy working and getting ready for my May 1st show. Here's Really?...
She's the 2nd drawing from my Expressions collections. I named her Really?... because I felt like she's got that look, that I give people when it feels like their BSing me and I'm just tired of listening to them and all I have the energy to say back to them is "Really?", the "Are you serious?" really type thing.
