A certain brother of mine once told me that he is bothered by the way I often paint people looking away from me. He'd rather see a portrait of someone looking right back at me/the viewer. Well, I'm a sucker for the contemplative, introspective moment, and I always will be.
This is a portrait of my niece Raven, who is normally lively and extroverted- and a gymnast.
