This month the Girls Just Wanna Paint Challenge subject is FOREIGN.
When I was on Virgin Gorda in the BVI this winter,
I took an image of this woman selling her "homemade treats"
at the local market.
A very complicated subject without much light and shadow,
something about the scene made me want to paint it.
Everything about her says that she takes her baking very seriously!
"Mrs. Grace's Homemade Treats"
8 x 10
(no way this was going to fit on a 6 x 6)
The "foreign" parts of this for me were:
Dark skin tones
All those colors
