Done I think

There are a lot of fallacies about art -- one is that a painting will
be easier to complete if it's smaller.  I haven't found that to be
true. Lol.  Here is what I think if my final version of the painting
of a super young woman who went to school across the street
from us as a girl. 

We are friends on Instagram, and she gave me permission a 
few weeks ago to do a portrait of her from a photo reference.
Here is the result.  And I think it's finished. Or is it the final
 version? I like it, and I hope she does. 

Have a loving your life day.
