100 OIL PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Dori, 49/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art
Another great reference photo with perfect lighting - thank you Dori! Here I go with the purple - orange combo again. I just really like those colors together. I struggled with curly hair in the beginning of this project, but now I like painting it.

I'd like to thank all of you for your kind comments and wishes about Morris' upcoming surgery. Kidney disease for him has been a slow, insidious process over the past three years. He has not had any pain to speak of - the main indication has been decreased renal function blood tests. His nephrologist said that over half her patient population has resulted from heavy use of NSAIDs - nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Alieve, Advil, aspirin, etc.
Morris took lots of Alieve for years because of gout. These are all over-the-counter drugs and we tend to think of them as safe.
