Yellow Face

This is number 3. Kind of a lot different from yesterday’s attempt. As is my m.o., I thought to myself, why stress about this? Just have fun. Do a doodle and see what happens. And about five hundred iterations later, this is what I have. So I quit for today. Maybe tomorrow will feel more like playing and less like torture. I’ll keep my fingers crossed and paintbrushes at the ready.

Progress is still being made

I am also working on finishing this portrait of my brother Joe and his wife Anna. I’ve been mostly staring at it for about a week now. I think I want to do something different with the background, but not sure what. Ima do some research and play with the picture in photoshop. Stay tuned!
