My youngest daughter has gotten into throwing temper tantrums. During one of these, I found it quite helpful to just sit down and paint. No surprise that my painting brought out a portrait of my grumpy little girl.
On the portfolio front, I’ve gotten down to the last four weeks before I need to have these four pieces done. It means I really have to cram. I’m still undecided as to what I’m going to do about the Beauty and the Beast piece. I’m not completely satisfied with it. So, I made up three more thumbnails (yes, I need to press harder with my pencil if I plan on scanning these). I’m still not completely satisfied. I like the composition of the one on the right, but it doesn’t tell much of a story. So, I’m putting it on the back burner to enable me to get to the other ones.
