Artwork / 2019 / Bettie
Though I don’t always make a sketch before making a painting, I did so with Bettie. You can see that drawing in this blog post, which also explains the project that led to me painting Bettie! The other portraits from that series are of Allyson, Cynthia, Deloris, Heather, Jeff, Kimberly, Lidia, Rubynell, Sanchioni, Sarita, and Smiley. For more about Bettie and my encounter with her, check out this blog post.
