Totally Chill

As we close our condo in Florida for the season, I’ve completed my winter project with the last portrait for the triptych “Three Sisters.” I intended to paint Cassie from a sweet photograph of her at her sister’s middle school graduation last year, until my daughter sent a text with a picture of Cassie that made me change my plans. There she was, in the front hall of their house, slouched against the furniture, wearing cool sunglasses (not the first time I’ve painted her in sunglasses) and cooler clothes, being the totally chill kid she is. That’s the portrait of Cassandra at 8 I had to paint. She’s  completely her own person…fierce with plenty of sweet, happy-go-lucky, kind, shrug off everything, smart, you go girl attitude. But I’m not too crazy about her, am I?
