Isn't it sad how a single comment can make you feel bad?
For those of you who checked earlier, you'll see that the photos of the Grand Ds are gone, along with that post. All from my husband saying, "Did you get a model release to post those photos?" He was serious.
That got me thinking about family.
And how maybe I don't have one?
So I went down to my art room to shut out the voices inside my head and worked a bit more on this painting of T. I think I'm getting closer to what I wanted to convey but still not there - doesn't really capture her essence at all...her fun-loving, her brightness, her crazy-kid spirit. But, heck, it's just a painting, right? And it is better and livelier than the other one.
