One of the most anticipated roles this year was the role that Meryl Streep would play in the second season of the HBO show 'Big Little Lies', and she did not disappoint. Though not everyone may agree with me, I loved the second season of the show and the dynamics that Meryl added. I loved it so much I was inspired to do a little portrait. I wanted to capture the secrecy and stoic nature of the character. We don't know much about Mary Louise going into the season and that doesn't change much until the final episode, her character always has her guard up and attacks when someone tries to figure her out. I wanted to portray that by having her look away from the audience, avoiding them almost.
