Another home portrait for Portland.

This particular portrait was difficult to finish not because of a particular challenge level. I took what I expected to be a short gig back in January working for the Census until my normal travel and tourism projects could be worked starting (normally) in the spring.  As you know nothing about this year is normal.  The great pause came along so I started doing these home portraits to bridge the work gap.  Then the Census started back only now they have to make up for lost time so it's really very intense. My pre-planned travel and tourism design plans are still dead in the water so I've hung in there with the Census.  I've been going so many days without a day off that I'm starting to lose track of what day of the week it is. Anyway, a half hour here, a half hour there... I finally finished this one. Watercolor on hot press cotton paper.

Just FYI

I haven't been posting lately because I'm doing some work for the dicentennial census.  They are working me to death (slight exaggeration) but it's safe to say I probably won't have much to post until I finish up with them.
