By Monica Salazar. WIP: Oil on canvas. 12 x 16 inches. 20015.

I have been working on this painting for the last two and a half years and I’m still not done. It’s based on a photo of my daughter when she was fourteen, on Halloween. I actually feel guilty about not finishing it because as an artist, and parent, I feel like I should have made many paintings of my child. And now that she is a teenager, I feel especially pressured, only by my own self of course, to finish all the portraits I started throughout the years. Time went by too fast.
