"Most teenagers are really concerned about their schoolwork and personal life, and how to create a balance between the two. (Advice to other teens)...just enjoy life and try not to stress over the little things that don't really matter in the long run."
Sionna is the sister of my daughter Olivia's best friend, Alana, so it was very special for me to paint her. The pose looks simple enough, and she never complained, but her mom told me later that her neck really hurt during the pose. I see it now in her expression. I think its hard for these young models to sit for four hours (they do get a break every 20 minutes), and I have to be really careful not to start a pose which may seem easy at the beginning, but could become difficult later on in the session.
