The discordant harmony of the colors is stunning; the fierceness in her eyes and the challenge in her posture are enchanting. I want to know her story.

I love the spirit and emotion coming out of this, along with all the abstract shapes!
I did have a question -- how do you prevent the graphite from mixing with your acrylic paint and it becoming muddy?
I have been meaning to mix graphite with my painting but always worried it wouldn't work!
Hope you can let me know!

Also, your Melissa and Mike: A Love Story was absolutely beautiful.
