"Pray-er #2"

Oil on Board

Another face from the retreat a week and a half ago. I'm enjoying doing these--they are like a meditation in themselves as I paint. This is not a portrait as much as it is an impression done from memory. She had such a serene countenance. I guess it doesn't really show that well in this painting, though! In doing this, I got more into just playing with color and the brushstrokes.
