"Marjorie" acrylic 11 x 14

Marjorie sat for the Goward House Painters today. She had a rainbow-coloured cardigan on and I should have included it but I was using my acrylic paints instead of my customary oils today so I concentrated on her features -- I challenged myself 'cos acrylic paint is new to me and I battle a bit.
Anyway, Marjorie liked it 'cos I excluded a wrinkle or two - when she told me this I offered to paint some IN - she laughed.

Ron, I am enjoying looking at your portrait of me as I pass by it in my house. And my husband loves it. You have given me a very flattering look, and yes, thanks for leaving out the wrinkles. It was a delight to have met you today. Marjorie
