The preview in this link for Daniel Gerhartz got me going. Unfortunately downpours and painting usually don't mix. (without a very strong umbrella)
I seemed to have managed only one successful painting of my wife Lecia in over 2 years. I feel the need to make more of an effort. I've tried twice in the last two to three weeks with no success. I did this one about two months after I started painting again, and although it isn't very detailed, I was pretty satisfied with the likeness.
