I didn’t have to look too far for my first subject. Who do I know better than my own children? My first painting in the “teen series” will be my daughter Megan. Some words I would use to describe her are shy, cautious, artistic, funny, creative, musical, concerned with fashion and her appearance, and pretty. Megan also struggles with anxiety and although I don’t want the portrait to scream anxiety, I do want to allude to it. Here are a select few from reference photos I have taken of her. I like aspects of each of these. Can you guess which one I chose to use?
