Miss Frances Mayfield McAlister

My first real oil painting.  I tried to work with some oils a few months ago and was too resistant to trying something new and didn't have any patience with them.  In retrospect, it was basically the same frustration I went through almost a year ago when I went from working with acrylic to watercolors.  With more patience and painting instruction from my husband and artist Matte Stephens, I yielded much better results!
