Alas, I should have stopped at this stage of the painting. But, I didn't. I pushed it into the ground, so to speak. I did have the instinct to take this quick photo with the telephone so as to have a souvenir  of what might have been.....as I liked something.
Its a quick study of a friend with whom I will have dinner this evening in Poët Laval before I leave tomorrow for a new life in Australia.
At the time (which is typical of me) I hated the haunted look of her face coming up, and instead of just keeping it and doing another, I ground it into the metaphysical floor of the studio.
A shame, too, because its the first portrait (in oil) I have done in maybe over 15 years.
