JEAN - A Texas Mug!

6x6 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord
This is Jean Townsend, a fabulous Texas artist (an introduction, just in case you haven't met her).  We've been promising each other to send photos of each other to paint and we finally did.  And I have to tell you that I had a blast painting Jean's mug.  She sent 3 great photos (and, yes I am going to paint them all - maybe more than once).  In this reference photograph, Jean wore a huge frown and smudged lipstick.  Just wonderful!  I've painted this not only for my pleasure and blog, but for Some Texas Artists Like To Paint.  The January challenge is mug shots.  Please check out these two blogs!
