this is a portrait of one of my best friends, Mandy. when a boy goes to art school, she is the girl that he hopes to meet. someone fun and talented and a little bit crazy who understands him when he feels incomprehensible. click here to read my version of her life story.
this painting was supposedly my half of an art trade. mandy made a puppet for my girlfriend and, too many months later, i sent her this. did i forget to mention her saintly patience?
