The scan is a bit blurry because the paper is still attached to a board that doesn’t quite fit on the bed. But here you go, progress of the day. I am really enjoying this retreat into repetitive, meditative process. i imagined the face as being more simple and generic than it turned out, but I’m leaving it as is till the other busy stuff gets sorted.
Here’s the state of things today. I guess I’ll make separate posts of progress, I expect this will take at least one or two more sessions to get to where I’ll call it done. There are a couple more waiting for further steps, so it’s possible that I won’t post many more of the usual thing before I take my usual week away from the internet at the end of June.
Welp, I got started on a thing that’s going to take several sessions to complete. But here’s how far I got on it this day.
My garden does not have hedgehogs, but I always love to have places where small wildlife can hide, and the plants that find purchase can surprise me there. If only the local groundhog would please leave my dahlia shoots alone.
I was out all afternoon and evening at a reception for my oldest niece, first of that generation in our family to get engaged. She tried on my wedding dress, and the one my mother, sister and cousin all wore. Real live princess time!
Below is the painting as I originally posted it. I always have the urge to tidy up “looseness”; I’m not sure that’s always best. In this case though, I like the colors in the finished image better, and it more nearly matches my intent.

no inspiritation, so just pretty geometrics.
I meant to type “inspiration” but I like the typo, so let it stand. Maybe it’s insp-irritation.
