Overdue 5×7" oil

I took a photo of this women working out.  It was a very dark room so I used a flash which explains the "glow" around her and the sharp, dark shadow around her face and right arm.  She was overdue (hence the title) and still working out.   She delivered a beautiful 7lb. 8oz. girl a couple days later (last Saturday).  She also has 2 older kids and is in the best shape of anyone I know.  She taught classes right up to her due date.  This looks just like her and I am happy with the results.  I never paint from photos using a flash and it was ok.
