New Photo 4-9-08 This piece left me nostalgic and melancholy, because I meant to complete this painting while my dear friend Susan was alive and regret that she passed away without seeing it. I hope that wherever she is now, that she’s pleased. Yes, I get a little batty staying up so late. I’m not so sure this challenge is working health-wise. I think I’m energetic only because I’m so psyched to be painting everyday, but I’m not get very much sleep, and the work week has only just begun! The glare was terrible. I’ll have to rephotograph it when it’s dry. Here’s a detail of the face. Again the glare distorts it a bit.
