Migration




Thinking of things leaving, birds on the wire, butterflies gathering, all in the process of a cycle.

However I don't have birds on a wire or a gathering of butterflies, but, I have them.

This face kept getting younger and younger as I painted, makeup doesn't really do that, I could try some acrylic and see for myself how I look. When I put in the hair scraggles she even got younger. But I am rather pleased anyway and there is always another face in the crowd.

Another beautiful piece of art, Emelie. YES, wouldn't it be nice if acrylic paint would remove some of the years and wrinkles? I'd invest in a few gallons of fleshtone! Happy Weekend!

I never know what I am going to end up with in any art form I create in....It seems to come as I go...maybe my muse went over to visit you and gave you this beautiful young woman.....or maybe she's going to give us the secret of how to paint our faces younger,,,hahaha what do you think?

She's wonderful Emelie....have a great weekend...

this is so great, emelie! i was just saying to someone the other day, my faces keep getting younger and younger...maybe there is something to this, maybe not...i added to that person, maybe it's because i think my time is running out! ha but true.
this is SUCH a sweet face, she is so sweet and youthful and i dig the black and white you added!! also love the seemingly fall colors! sooo good for the eyes to feast on!

Younger is definitely good. I enjoyed catching up on your painting. I like this one a lot.
