Aaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!! I was so excited to paint this portrait, I couldn’t wait. I usually try to put a few days between profiles, but this one had to be done immediately.

Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp Randall Fraser is one of my top 5 favorite women in literature. Defiant, magical, über-intelligent, and slightly witchy.

Diana Gabaldon is an amazing storyteller- but more of a painter in the way she sets her scenes. I am also madly in love with the male lead in the books- James Fraser (as is anyone who reads these books.) I pretty much melt every time I see a ginger in a kilt! Just call me Sassenach (in a Scottish accent)— please!

The Outlander Series is worth your time. The portrait I’ve painted depicts a scene in the second book of the series- Dragonfly in Amber which takes place in 18th century France. Historical fiction fans- rejoice!

Also to note- the 8th book in the series comes out next month and the television series comes out on Starz in August. DIVE IN NOW! You can purchase the first book in the series here: http://tinyurl.com/pbvalnp
