I am getting a lot closer to being finished with this painting. The face has really given me all kinds of trouble and I expect it still will, but I’m feeling a lot better about the direction its heading.

I’m disappointed about not having it done in time for this months Nibblefest, but it was a worthy goal and I feel good about this piece as a whole.

I won’t have much time to paint this weekend. My mom is coming over tomorrow to watch the Academy Awards with us and I want to cook something special for the event. So today is consumed with meal planning, shopping and deep cleaning the house. Not as much fun as arting, but like a completed piece, should feel great once its over!
