I'm doing a new painting of Dinara. It's wet-on-wet, which means
I try to paint it very quickly. This is an oil painting, and shows the
progress I made this morning. I hope you enjoy it!

Absolutely brilliant Mary, you've completely captured her facial expressions :worship:

It is not done, and I apologize for the glare from the paint on the last ones--the
paint is so wet that I get lots of reflections of light.

Amazing work Mary, congrats again :yeah:
Btw, did you do that sketch behind Safina's canvas, too?
Feb 17th, 2007, 09:57 PM
Heh. I wish!

Absolutely incredible Mary! You have a real talent.

Sorry for the strange lighting--it's partly cloudy here and I can't get
good light on the painting.

Thanks! I put the last glaze on this morning (a very
quick-drying color) so it should be ready next week for
Indian Wells! I'll try to take a better picture of it
and post it this weekend.

I was able to give it to Ms. Safina at the practice courts on
Friday (the 9th?) She smiled and was very gracious.
I happened to see her wandering around on Sunday as well, and
spoke to her about her match the previous day. She thanked
me again for the painting, and I told that I hope she liked it.
She asked me if I was going to be at IW for her match on Monday,
and I told her I had to leave to go back to work. She was very nice.

yay! I'm so happy you got to give it to her! :D
