Molly Levine

A beautiful and very talented young painter and MECA graduate, Molly Levine. Molly first posed for me in my junior year (top pic) and we did a little Tarot reading before I started drawing. Molly picked The Star and The World, and I included them in her portrait. The second time Molly sat for me was for my senior thesis portrait project (2nd pic) and the third time I drew Molly, we were sitting together on a bus to NYC with the MECA Painting and Print departments. I like this little portrait of Molly best of all...

Love all your compositional choices, but the first piece is my favorite. I also love the orange jacket harmonizing with her dark auburn hair.
