A little more to go...

I'm doing this painting for my neighbor Chris. I shot this photo when we were at there house last spring as Lucy Brown (on left) was being honored. She's in her early 80s and has lived in our neighborhood all her life. She was moving out of her beautiful home to a condo/retirement home. We miss her fun, fiery spirit, but she loves not having to worry with home maintenance and snow shoveling! Anyway, I'm almost finished with the painting and don't want to do much more. I want Chris to be more prominent and not "finish" Lucy as much, so I plan to keep a sketchiness to her figure. I'll post the end piece when finished.

Great job, Sis---I think he should really like it. Love all the scumbling and texture!
