A woman I admire

Searching through posts for women I've painted who I admire I came upon this painting that I love of our friend Jan Marriott, who sells vintage fabrics.  She no longer sells them
at the market, but she sells them online. I always love it when people use my paintings as
their profile shot, and Jan does. 

So many of the portraits in my Dance series paintings were only possible because the
beautiful vintage dresses came from Jan.  So I am eternally grateful to her.  And plus
she is a sweetheart -- incredibly knowledgeable about everything to do with vintage fashion
and fabric.

So thank you to you Jan. Google won't let me put the link in here, but you can
follow Jan on Instagram under the name Jan_Marriott.

Have a loving your life day.
