After lots of starts, stops and procrastinating, the face drawing finally began and ever so tentatively. I was so scared to mess it up, that I really did mess it up (self-fulfilling prophecy), but remembered I could paint over acrylics and try again. I'm still not satisfied, although it is improving. This is definitely a struggle -- not a success (yet!). For one thing, the colors are all off. The hair is only a hank of yarn on her bald head.
While you are reading this, pal Hiromi and I will be in Nadine Spier's in-home class on pine needle basketry. Ooh, a new technique to learn!
