As far as portraits go, I
can't stand am not fond of this effort. My focus pin-pointed down to trying to get the likeness correct, and as a result, everything else tightened up like piano wire. Without relaxing and enjoying the process, the whole thing came out looking taut and constricted. Then my habit of procrastinating left me no time to redo it before the deadline.
Will I never learn?
Anyway, a huge thank you to Jill for arranging and coordinating the entire effort, and another huge thank you to Karin for her inspiration and her insistence that we stretch ourselves artistically.
To ease my disappointment in the outcome of the portrait, I delved into the shipment of Girl Scout cookies, and have successfully Do-si-doed myself into a stupor.
My Muse is looking for the Pepto Bismol. To gluttony, and beyond!
