One day, Isabelle came to work wearing blue denim overalls over a white sweater. On the day that she decided to pose for me, she came in wearing the blue denim overalls over this rainbow colored shirt. She was ready to change into the white sweater when I realized that the multicolored rainbow shirt was preferable. You see, the shirt had a candy colored feel to it and since I was like a kid in a candy store with this beautiful young woman in front of me, I thought the shirt was appropriate. I had originally planned to paint her in a serious pose, but when she started posing for me, she had this little smile on her face that brought out the most wonderful dimples you have ever seen.
