Jane French, an artist I follow on Instagram, is trying to do a loose style -- and 
paint a portrait in 100 minutes. I won't commit to a hundred 
minutes, but I do plan to paint some portraits.

This is what I worked on today.  Definitely a work in progress.
And so much fun.  The subject is a wonderful young woman.

Happy January 3 -- and here's to creativity.

Have a loving your life day.

Here’s to creativity❣️ This painting is beautiful and looks like you could stop here. I also follow Jane French. I watched the episode of PAOTY 2021 that she was in.

Hi Evelyn,

Thank you! I haven't seen the episode you mention, but I love seeing
her work. And I love seeing your work.
