I've just started painting Jeana. I'm loving every minute of it. It's SO NICE to be painting something that isn't PINK. I have given myself until the end of May to finish it. I've painted this much in two days, so I reckon I'll do it. Isn't she beautiful. I took this photograph 35 years ago. I hope the dark blackish background doesn't cause too many problems when I get to it. My friend doesn't know I'm doing this painting, so part of the pleasure is the anticipation of her surprise. This will be one of the few times I've posted when I haven't had a problem.
