Arianna by firelight finished

Here is the finished painting of Arianna by the fire. It took me alittle bit with kids and pets coming and going this week.
I fiddled with her far eye and added more reds and purple shadows. It was a challange to get it to look like nighttime and I am happy with the outcome. I will try another night painting soon.

Johannah just got 8" cut from her hair to donate to "Locks for Love". They make wigs from donated hair for those who have lost hair to cancer treatments.
