a commision for the gate keeper


I was asked on the last day of school, to paint a portrait of the security guard's girlfriend by... Monday, the 25th. It's for her birthday. I've been so busy I only got to it now. Two versions are on the easel, but the one on the left is definitely better. (Doesn't the right one sag? I'm talking about the eyes!) The guard is Haitian so I hope he doesn't mind that I added a veve from Erzulie the voodoo goddess of Love. I might have to make it more bold and prominent in the good one.
