Molly Portrait - COMPLETE

This is a portrait of Molly  - her mother commissioned me to paint her high school graduation portrait last year. In their family, when the children graduate from high school, they choose a painter who they want to have do their portrait, and I was very honored to have been picked by Molly. I kept her head, especially her eyes, the focus of the painting, and the rest of her unresolved, to reflect her incipience as she is away from her family for the first time. 

I put together a little 50-second video on youTube with muzak- if you're interested in watching.
