    When I was younger, 28 or so, a friend who was in her 40s told me that it took her til then to feel like she really fit in her own skin. At the time, I didn’t understand because I wasn’t there yet. What would it feel like to be utterly comfortable with your body, with your life choices, with your age and direction? Would there come a point when I didn’t worry? When thoughts of how I could have done something better wouldn’t constantly surround me when I gave them a moment to flutter in to the empty spaces?

    Yes. Now I know.

    The colors, light and composition are yummy

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.
