If you are trying to do a portrait of a woman over 50, good luck trying to please her. In addition to that, what artist is happy with their work? This is a tough one, seriously. I will tell you the truth. I showed this to my own mother this week and she did not realize it was supposed to be me. Frightening. Like does that mean I did a bad job? ... or that I am making it "wrong" because I see myself different than others do? or that my ma is losing it? So this will probably take a while. Besides, I start another residency Monday. WOOHOOO!
