Diane Mannion, BECKY, 10x8" oil

      Becky posed for us today at the Venice Art Center Portrait group.  Lovely model!  Wish we had longer than two and a half hours, seemed to fly while painting... but for poor Becky it must have seemed forever.  Not easy sitting still!
      Finally finished a large painting today, just in time to enter the Portrait Society Members Only competition.  I'll post it tomorrow along with a few in-progress photos.  Too many deadlines this time of the year for major shows.  Has thrown me completely off posting a daily painting, even though I've been pushing the brush day and night.  Larger paintings take a lot longer, at least for me.  Wish I could paint faster.
