I am so honored to be included with the talented artists this book! Such a diverse group. Portraits are not my specialty. I panted several landscapes, but I wasn’t happy with any of them. This piece was challenging, but that forced me to learn and grow. The background on this is really very pretty, not showing well here. The paint had its way, and created interesting texture and movement.
To learn a bit more about Babe, you can take a look at my post. She was a superstar athlete before women were even athletes. Amazing!
