Sandy has a brand new necklace!

Ok, I know it was supposed to be already finished but I maintain the prerogative to change my mind. Sandy needed an extra touch of flash. She, herself, has that extra "something" which
you recognize when you meet her...the unexplainable charisma. In paint I can only hope to indicate such intangibles with crude lack of finesse. It is a symbol, if you will, of Sandy's extra "something." I chose not to paint her in one of her performance outfits, some of which have bangles, fringe, and/or sequins and shine. That would have distracted from Sandy's face. The addition of the necklace (also symbolic of her native American heritage) is just enough. It is really too bad you can't meet her in person and feel the beauty of her aura.
