Linda

I joined Curves a few years ago
after finding out I had high blood
pressure and was told to lose some
weight....Well, I did, and since then
I try to go at least 3 times a week to
maintain my weight. Linda is the
manager in Oceanside and an inspiration
to all of us. She has beautiful green eyes
that HAD to be painted! I hope Curves
appreciates the wonderful person
they have representing their Company.

  1. Cette jeune femme a dans le regard tant de douceur... Je suis certaine qu'elle doit être une personne très généreuse...
    Ma chère Hilda, cette oeuvre est d'une grande qualité. Vous avez le don de traduire des émotions, des expressions... Votre support est votre confident. Vous lui donnez tout votre ressenti et avec une technicité très affûtée.
    Très joli travail.
    Gros bisous à vous

  12. Is a wonderful portrait, as usual, and I'm sure it looks like her.
    It's true, she has a very beautiful eyes,my first glance was towards her eyes. I also have high blood pressure, but regrettably I won't be able to attend at Curves and I see her.
