Still no sewing, but…

2014 May 20

All the fires have abated.  All the evacuees have returned home.  School is back in session, but my little boy got strep throat this weekend, so he’s still at home sick.  Thank you for all your kind words of concern over the fires here last week.

Today, although the little boy who lives with me still did not feel well, we did a little painting together.  I could not start a new painting without finishing my subway woman portrait, so I did.  Finish it, that is.  I was inspired to finish it after attending another painting class yesterday evening with some friends.  We  painted a snowy mountain scene.  It was so much fun!  Here’s how it turned out.

And here’s what Jack and I did today.

The face was very difficult to do and doesn’t match the original photo exactly, but I’m ok with that.  I did my best.  And I’m happy she’s done now.  I love her.

I hope to start  my Mom’s maxi dress tonight or tomorrow.  Hopefully Jack will be back in school tomorrow.  *crossing fingers*

Happy painting!

    Your painting of the subway woman is perfect. I’m sure you captured her exactly. Good eye good heart. And Jack’s is a masterpiece.
    Thank you.

    I love that subway Woman painting. It’s good that it doesn’t match exactly – that’s what makes it art. (If it matches exactly it might as well be a photograph.)
