This is a painting of my best friend, Jessy.  In real life, I had painted her face with white paint, and dressed her up for fun and to take photographs. I loved how the original photo of this turned out, so I made a painting of it.  My favorite part is the actual build up and texture of the white "face paint" on her. This piece was quite different for me, as I usually NEVER paint in flesh tones.  I wanted to challenge myself, and step out of my comfort zone, and I'm so glad that I did.
