Happy Halloween!

Made it to Portrait Class after all! Tonight was supposed to be having my head examined (literally) during the session, but the kind folks at Duke were able to do my MRI early, so I got to make it to a short session of class. Jean is a fantastic model, very elegant, and also a genuinely sweet person, so it's great to have a chance to paint her. Probably had about 1 and 1/2 hours in this effort, so far.

Also glad not to be having the MRI during the witching hours...I was pretty sure zombies were going to try to eat my brain if one was found. Hope your Halloween brought you some fun and some yum. Aloha!


  1. You captured the essence of this elegant lady in such a short time,well done!!

  2. Wonderful portrait Melle! Love the strong personality emanating through. The background has a lot of interest as well.
