IF: Boundaries.

This week's Illustration Friday prompt was "Boundaries," and all I kept thinking of was a woman with a shotgun protecting hers.  Perhaps some 'bad man' was trying to take her farm, or maybe she is just really pissed off at the world.  Either way, I really liked how it turned out.  I used acrylic paints on a piece of 5"x7" hardboard.  I'm especially excited because this is the first time I've painted anything in almost two years.  

My first ever Illustration Friday Submission.  This one is for the prompt "boundaries."
I think I'll call her Loretta, and if you want to buy her she'll be for sale on Etsy via my shop, here.    The original sold within 15 minutes of my posting it to Etsy, but I plan on having prints for sale soon.

Can't wait until Friday for the next prompt!

She looks pretty grim--great expression.

She looks grim, but also very scared. I find your painting impressive. The gray colours like a black and white photograph from the old days, or an old movie. Anyway it's nice that you started painting again!

Thanks Coreopsis, and hedwig, it felt great to break out the brushes again. Definitely excited to see what next week's prompt will be.

I love the detail of light on the fingers; the back of the chair.
Really great and I'm glad you

It's hard with a little kid, huh?
