Cowgirl Complete

cowgirl rembrandt 002

I finished my “Cowgirl Rembrandt” today. I’m really happy with it. This person is direct but hides a little bit behind the brim of the hat. My sister said “Make her have a little smile” but it was too late. The die was cast. The composition formed. I’m going to keep making these portraits as I find interesting subjects. Until I do I’m working on a landscape. I’m trying to infuse it with feeling. I’ll be sharing that with you as soon as it’s worthy.

    This is very nice. I, too, love to paint. Pastels are one of my favorite mediums. I don’t have much time to paint these days in that I really am running a small farm. I do like beauty though. It looks as if you do too. She is really beautiful to me. Did you mean to make her beautiful?

      Thank you! And to answer your question I didn’t mean to make her anything but what she is. She’s just IS beautiful and all I needed to do was not screw it up.

    The smile is in her eyes. Thank you for sharing your talent.
