In a couple of days I will hand deliver this painting to his mother when we meet in Paris. I can't wait.

By using Nick Simmons' 'throw it on the wall' fluid acrylic technique, the background was nearly completed before I ever started the portrait. The actual portrait has been painted with transparent watercolor over the fluid acrylic drips.

Peter is such a free spirit, and my husband says that this really captures him. It's good to finally paint again and get one that makes me really smile.

Now I'm off to pack....... Au revoir!
