This is a pastel portrait I did not long ago called "Sophisticated Lady." 

Beautiful job

I have been wanting to do a selfie using the teachings of Sandra Silberzweig and finally had the chance.  I have fallen in love with her work and just hoped not to be ashamed of my final product.  When I finished, I sent it to her and actually got a thumbs up and a smiley face so I feel pretty good about it.  Enjoy.

Thank you so much, Kathy!

I think that sometimes you have to step away and give it time.  I like the joy you have in her face.
