$30

And a glarey sneak peak at my next painting in my Jumeaux series, which should be done on the morrow:

I am going to finish this soon I believe.  I would like to work on the edges, and of course, put in the arms and finish the background.  I like showing progress pictures 🙂

Here is a closer shot and one from the in progress:
