"Mary breathes life into her work with each brushstroke. Every portrait reaffirms the feminine mystique..."
It hurts to breathe as Mary steps away from the chattering crowd, her hand over her heart. This is her big night as an up and coming artist, yet here she is having a panic attack over the announcer's words. She is just an average painter with a sweetheart back in Kansas. She even still has paint smudges on her fingers and in her hair...
Mary takes another breath, calming herself, before stepping back inside. No matter, she does deserve this. Her moment is now.
