Oh, don’t you love when inspiration just bite you in the bum and next thing you know you’re off! That was me today. I’m pacing (racing, rather) trying to catch up in the 30 in 30 challenge. I refuse to drop out and being the overachiever, I actually want to do 30 paintings before this weekend ends.

This painting was inspired by today’s muse, the gorgeous Tracee Ellis Ross. Some of you may remember her from “Girlfriends”? Her character Joan was my icon. I would watch that show and get an idea of what a “real” lawyer’s life looked like (back when I was hell-bent on being an attorney). Friends, relationships, aging, all of it. I miss that show.

She has such a great energy about her and I snapped several of photos from her Instagram gallery for inspiration. Thanks for viewing!
