Work has been steadily continuing on the three portraits I'm trying to finish before we move and we're now down to only about sixty more days before the movers take our stuff. The excitement is beginning to build and it's becoming increasingly difficult to fall asleep at night. It seems like there are about a million-and-one things to consider and it's not unusual for some of those thoughts to prompt a jump out of bed and scribbled "note to self".
Anyway, today I thought Pat was beginning to look more like the Pat I see in the reference photo, so I invited her here to have a look and then sent it home with her. She's a painter, too, and I'm looking forward to listening to her critique and ideas to improve it. As we look at the painting, I know her right eye needs more work and I'll be taking the values lower on the left side of her face. Her left earring is too bright and a bunch of other areas need fixing, too. I'm sure you all can see additional flaws, only a few of which are camera-induced. So, what the heck, since she got to see it, I thought, you should, too. I hope everyone out there had a pleasant night's sleep!
