Time to Paint

I had the whole day! What a treat, not only to have the time, but also to have it happen here, at home. I don’t have to move everything out of the kitchen when I’m finished.

This portrait is working out OK. I’m certainly absorbed. It doesn’t look like the model much anymore. But there are areas I really like. I don’t remember the last time I painted a face, in school in the 70s? She’s a bit splotchy but not too bad. I won’t be so nervous about a portrait the next time.

  1. I think this is excellent, Candi. You captured so much in her expression. I can almost imagine the story of her life. Great job.
