Vivacious

A pencil portrait of my friend Harmeet, who has wanted one for a long time! She is a beautiful and self confident woman with a vivacious personality; a teacher by profession.I hope these traits reflect in this portrait.
The photo was provided by Vikram who happens to be my friend, and her husband :)
Pencil on paper, 16"x12"1

  12. She is beautiful, Arti!! No surprise to me at all. She also reminds me of the lady who hosts "Challenge" on the Food Network. Can't think of her name off the top of my head.

    Anyway, do you still have my email address? I wanted to talk to you about purchasing the portrait you did of me a while back...Thanks!!
