Confidante

In the midst of road trips, guests, cookie baking marathons and de-shingling a roof, I snatched at the quiet hours here and there to get some paint onto canvas.

This is a face that reminds me of so many people-- that way of pressing in her top lip like she's about to chuckle;  her nose is remarkably similar to my college roommate's; her eyes take me back to the liquid look of a girl I once babysat.

I really played up the sun patches on her face and studied the bounce of reflected light from the sunlight warming her turquoise kameez.
