“Aja I”

My second portrait workshop with Cuong Nguyen confronted me with this beautiful, exotic creature. (Later I learned she had Caribbean roots.) attempting Aja was scary for me: Why? the idea of becoming a portrait artist was in front of my mind.
Thanks for your patience with older material! Next week I have a new model scheduled to work with me, and I expect she will be inspiring! (Thanks, Sondra.)
