Girl by the Window

Painting of young model Mary N. This is a situation where I did not know the family very well but felt compelled to paint this child. Many times I've seen someone that I wanted to paint, for various reasons, but did not approach them...always regretful. This is one of several I have planned of this model. The painting ended up being a little more "portrait-like" than I planned but I love the pose, expression and setting. Also love the contrast between the darker, somewhat somber background and her vibrant, colorful dress. 24x30
