You might recognize this gal because I painted her once before. I think she was the second one I painted in my ongoing sunglasses/glasses series I started last summer. So, why am I painting her again? Well, first of all, I love how the first painting came out. It’s one of my favorite paintings from the series so far.
Secondly, I had filmed me painting her for my YT channel, and then my old (I shouldn’t call it old. I had it only 2.5 years) Windows computer hard drive failed. I lost those videos, and about three weeks worth of work that I had neglected to backup. Ugh.

Here’s a friendly reminder for you..always back up your computer to an external drive. I had to learn that lesson the hard way, and I’ll never make that mistake again. Now, thanks to Time Machine, my files get backed up automatically every hour. Also, at least once a week, back up your backup drive. Hard drives fail, so it’s good to have more than one external drive.
It’s almost finished, but still a work in progress at the moment. I’m filming the process of this new painting, and will be uploading the video to my YT channel sometime in the near future.
The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can. –Neil Gaiman
