But this morning I was able to wake up a bit early and spend an hour making new backgrounds and trying to figure out what to do with the hair on the woman in my main work-in-progress. Let me tell you -- deciding about her hair is freaking me out. Because I really love how her face looks, and poor hair attempts have definitely ruined many a fine face of mine before. But obviously the risk of face ruination must be taken, and a finished piece is worth it . . . so I'm trying to be brave. I keep telling myself that there are no mistakes in art -- and that even if there are, that's what white paint is for. ;)
Also, I just want to say how grateful I am for you. Thank you for leaving me little love notes of encouragement or understanding here. I'm sad that I'm not able to reply to your kind words right now due to the baby-induced lack of time (see above), but I read every single one. If you'd really like a reply, please make sure that your email address is associated with the account you use to comment -- that makes it much easier for me to reply. Thanks, sweet loves!
p.s. Did you spy Eve's name in one of the backgrounds in the top photo? I'm going to try to incorporate both my children's names into new pieces, just for fun. I love both finding and hiding secret treasures of meaning like that. Both of their names are in the bottom piece -- can you find them? :)
