This is a portrait of my sister, Annie, who is autistic; we love to paint together and one day we tried making portraits of each other. Annie likes to wear beautiful aprons when she paints. She had one with golden bees that day and I turned the bees into bright spots. I tried to use proportions for the face and mostly warm colours to make Annie feel happy when she looks at her portrait. Annie loves it very much!
