We worked on front facing portraits, adding texture with modeling paste, and honoring our past. I found this quote by Ralph Blum that I really like...
"The obstacles of your past can become the gateways that lead to new beginnings."

I like the way she turned out. But, I wish her expression didn't look quite so sad or worried. Does she look worried? I sometimes tend to be a "worrier." How interesting that it crept right into this painting. :)
It's funny. Each week I watch all the videos, but have yet to
complete all the lessons. (Totally embracing my slow pace)
With this one...I jumped right in!
My daughter, a little budding artist, watched Tam with me
and drew with me.
I LOVE that!
Working with her reminds me to have eyes like a child. She adored her own work and was very proud of it. She kept making comments like,
"Mommy, look at this nose. It looks real!"
"Mommy, this is soooo good."
"Mommy I think she needs big pink cheeks!"...and plopped them
down with bold confidence. :)
I think I need to remember that fearless little girl I once was and
embrace my inner child! :)
