Angela III

My girlfriend Angela came and posed for the Monday night group. I think this is the third time I've painted her portrait, but it's always fun, I'm just going to start losing track pretty soon. Apart from her upper lip being a little bit too long it's a pretty good likeness.

In other news, I'm headed to the New York City Comic Convention this weekend! It should be a good time and there should be plenty of great work to see. If you're also going, let me know in the comments, maybe I'll see you there.
