well. to be honest, I love this piece! I love her beginning, middle and end of her. I love the message most of all. "find your happy place". but, I dont think that I'm happy with having her in just one happy place, so I think this might have to be a 'happy place' series! I'm happy at my easel, I'm happy reading, or having tea... yeah, this may be a loose and free series of wonky but trying-to-be-happy girls!
I had 3 photo references I went by, creating a very loose pose.
and heres her history on the canvas;
