Penny for your thoughts

I haven't had a chance to take more reference photos for my portraits so I used an older photo.  I said I would paint some landscapes and here I am painting another portrait.. lol  It was such a nice photo and it was calling me AGAIN.

  14. Encuentro muy bien que pintes retratos, porque son preciosos y eres una gran maestra pintándolos. A mi me gustan mucho. Tal vez porque no soy capaz de pintarlos y admiro a los que saben. Bravo.
    Como siempre: Magnífico!!
    Un abrazo.
