Update on two birds

...is still a work in progress.   This morning I arranged my ART time to allow more than 15 minutes so I could paint this face.  I didn't want to feel rushed or frustrated about having to leave it, if not with a bad vibe, maybe just at an awkward point.  So, I decided that I needed at least one hour and fifteen minutes before proceeding with a paint brush.  

Therefore, in addition to cutting back on my internet time, I cut a few corners in the getting ready for the office department, like not washing my hair and skipping the leg hair chore.  I didn't take time to fix a brown bag lunch either. I stayed focused on rushing through the plan.

Yesterday, I sat in front of the bathroom mirror and held my hand like that for the sketch and I was excited about painting this morning but would not start until I knew I had reserved extra time.  It really does my heart good to discover that I can still paint a face and be happy with it.   You know I will share again when I finish this piece. 

I'm looking forward to a nice weekend and hope you are too.
♥ Sharon

  3. Beautiful...I am loving the birds (especially those nesting in her hair/head) reminds me of this chinese proverb that I love
    "You cannot prevent the birds of sadness from passing over your head, but you can prevent them from making a nest in your hair."

    Lovely hand...not easy to draw.

  4. I was so sad to see the previous painting brushed over, but now I know I should have trusted your judgement. This is beautiful! I can't wait to see it finished. xo
    (P.S. I hope you didn't wear a mini skirt today... you know - the leg thing chore that you skipped - you are too funny)

  5. I had to smile and a big smile, because when I saw the body language, it was sort of what I have felt all day. This is a complete transformation of backgorund and birds, but the colors vibrate and are beautiful, so is the hand, those long fingers, such grace.
    This painting does have a mood, maybe it is me that has the mood, but I feel it when I look at the work. I do like those random dots of color they appear to be so accidental.
