Will you paint my child?
And as you do, can you change the shirt color, put back the feet that the photo cut off, fix the messed up hair?
When I discovered I could make colors and shapes look like faces, friends became more interested in my paintings. I got a little more accurate and a little faster with each one, so I began to think I could accept any challenge.
As it turns out, yes, it is possible to do all of those things. I just shouldn't have tried to learn so many things all in one painting. There is one more very important lesson I learned while working on this painting... painting three little faces is three times as hard or time consuming as painting one! Imagine... how could I not have figured that out ahead of time!
