Portrait of Niki as a Caravaggio

Niki is starting a new project as the Culinary Artist in Residence at Villa Montalvo. We spent the day today working on creating this portrait. It's the first time in months that I've used my DSLR (as opposed to my phone), and wow was it satisfying. After we finished our work, we celebrated with a stupendous late lunch at Chez Panisse. A truly wonderful day.
