portrait(s) finish: " so...what's for dessert"

i put the final touches on the portrait commission yesterday, but was too lazy to post it. there has been very little more of substance sine the last posting. i darkened the vertical shapes and added a bit of charged color here and there...mostly turquoise blue and a mixture of cadmium red light and alizarin crimson permanent after two separate glazes of prussian blue and alizarin crimson, respectively. i painted around the intricate design on the woman's dress with a desaturated ultramarine blue (raw sienna). i think that's it. just awaiting final decision about matting (yes or no) by the client then off in the post.
"so...what's for dessert?" (14"X20")
