Her name is, Anke, and she was photographed in Ludwigsburg, Germany at the "Venezianische Messee," an event held every two years. When I saw her I decided she would do nicely to fulfill this challenge
The photographer is Thomas Frejek and he has graciously granted my permission to post the painting here on a permanent basis. This link will take you to the orignal photo.
My painting does her little justice; but it was a fun one to do. I hope there are a few of you out there who like her as well. By the way, she is just a sketch that took me about half an hour to do; not a finished piece of art that would take weeks.
