The Mystic

I'm currently exploring the theme of women empowered by using their skills, be it playing a musical instrument or just completely at home in their own skin...happy and busy being themselves. 

This woman was spinning these small metal hoops and I liked the way the light was catching them and her intent look as she balanced them. She was caught up in her skill and I love her Renaissance Fair costume.

 I was trying to work her to a 9x12" for easy framing...but I always seem to want to push further.

This was tough with all the detail, but I'm happy with the result.  Next time I may go a bit larger.

Thanks for following my blog and happy painting!
