This is Gretchen. She is a self described "Bleeding heart liberal enviro-geek sailor girl". She can also sing really well. I met her through working with her husband, a carpenter and builder that I have worked with on a few renovation projects.
This portrait was originally done in my 8x10 Grand Portrait Sketchbook in an airplane traveling from Texas to Maine. Once I photographed it and had a digital image, I overlaid it onto the original handwritten sheet music of "Heroic Polonaise" in A-flat major, Op. 53 – by Chopin.
