This is Anabelle. She has recently passed away. Her wonderful family had asked me to paint her so they could have a lasting memory. What a joy it was, although bittersweet. She just seemed to be helping me paint. I have begun something recently that I didn't pay much attention to before: painting the eyes first. The eyes are my most challenging part, because I believe it's the eyes that reveal the soul. So it's been good for me to do that. Once they are perfect (to me, and I always hope to the family, too), then I can take a deep breath and move on. The family was very pleased with this and that's what matters to me.
