Another fantasy model at Studio 30 with dramatic face paint, Mimi was based on "The Black Swan", but I painted her more like "The Kiss of the Spider Woman"! The lower photo was taken in the studio (was it really that red?), then I worked to soften her expression to be less scary. The background reminds me of the winter sunset from my walk a few afternoons ago. "Mimi" is painted in oil, 12" x 16".
