9X12 original pastel painting on sanded paper
Some paintings come together easily. Some do not. This one painted itself. I do not know how that happens or why, but when it does, I thank the Lord, especially if it is a commission. I always get a little worried meeting new folks of whom I am going to paint. As soon as I met up with her, Lindsey made it easy. She talked to me unabridged, not as someone her age would with an older adult. I like to talk to my subjects as I work with them. Easy again. Her posing came effortless, comfortable. Even the autumn background was natural, pleasant and peaceful.
