After a three-week visit to my folks in Virginia to take care of my mom after her back surgery, and then a very pleasant week's vacation at the beach, I'm back at my studio.
Right before I left for Virginia I completed this portrait of a fellow artist, Karen Frazer, for an exhibit at Rail Walk Gallery titled "Figures & Faces." This is my first studio portrait using acrylics. I had done one portrait study in acrylics a couple of years ago, but didn't attempt a full-scale portrait until this one. I think it turned out very well. Her husband said he loved it and that it looks exactly like her. That's quite a compliment!
