is computer savvy and like Annie, impeccably reliable. The last 2 days of her sitting,
the weather was cold, wet and windy. While painting her on a friend's patio I offered her the
option of putting on a coat. She continued posing as the coat merely covered the bottom of
her arms insisting "the cold isn't too bad". Considering I was pretty miserable myself
while dressed in multiple layers,
I am still in awe of her rugged commitment.
What I like best about this portrait is not only does it show Lauria's physical beauty, but
her sensitivity and intelligence as well.
