This was a long-ago commission, graphite on paper. I haven't done a portrait in this style for quite a while.
I have been devoting too much time to marketing art and not enough time to doing art lately. I don't like that. I start thinking of my painting time as a guilty pleasure, and that is warped thinking. That's my job, and if it happens to be a pleasurable job, well, good for me. I've also been neglecting my health by not exercising enough. I told my husband I was going to suffer from flabosity if I didn't change, and he said there is also danger of gelatiny (pronounced jel-at'-nee). Such a wiseguy.
