DSFDF portrait exchange

It's that time of year again... the Different Strokes from Different Folks portrait exchange is at hand. I don't know who this artist is, but she is painting my portrait. I had a heck of a time with this painting- from the first strokes of the first draft to the photographing of the final piece, it was difficult... it looks better (as they generally do) in person. I cropped the reference to just focus on the expression on the face. I am fairly pleased with the finished product, especially compared to the first attempt. :)
