Meet my Abby. In addition to being a sweet human being, she's been a gracious friend and classmate who, as my glassblowing partner, even trusted me to not incinerate her. She'll be graduating this fall--they grow up so fast!--and since I was due for another portrait...

The color scheme turned out much more fanciful than intended, but I'm not complaining. I had planned on learning to properly paint a moon-lit red-head (which Abby is), but the muse had other, better ideas. As for said idea, I've often wondered wistfully what it would be like to catch a falling star. When I came across a picture of Abby in this pose, I knew exactly what to do and wish. May graduated life be kind to and incredible for you, Abby!
