One of the Simpliest ways to be Happy, is Letting Go of the Things that Make you Sad.
This painting was made using a combination of styles. The background is very flowy expressive brush strokes with a few outlining details. The lovely lady is surrounded by a aura of white which allows her as a great focal point but also gives a nice balance to the entire painting. For the lovely lady's face and dress her detail was a bit more finely tuned. She has free forming color but is touched off with more detail in her dress and face to give her more of a predominant role in the painting.
