I've been working on this commission for a couple of weeks on and off and thought I'd go ahead and share it with you. Angela is the security guard where I work. She is a very hard working and talented woman. Besides working as security guard, she has her own Christian radio talk show in the afternoons and sings too. She is very involved with her church and community. I've enjoyed getting to know her.
This is a crop of the 11"x14" pastel on velour. I just scanned the middle of the portrait to post. I still have lots of bead work to do on her hat and suit - right now it is just the underpainting on that part. She saw it the other day and was thrilled with it so far.
