Virginia (Oil on canvas board, 11x14). I was out of 9x12" boards so I went up to the next size I had available. I find 9x12" to be a comfortable size to get done in the limited time, but I enjoyed having the extra room to work -- especially getting the shoulders in. I violated every rule having kept the background white, but I like it. I'll live with it for a few days before deciding whether to return to it and add color. It was a good term -- I learned a lot. Many thanks to my instructor, Ben Young, for all of his help and advice.
