It's been a while...
Whew! I've been on an extended vacation to Greenville, Folly Beach and Charleston, SC and Atlanta, GA visiting family and the ocean. While I was Outside, entertainer Michael Jackson died unexpectedly, the governor of South Carolina temporarily lost his mind, and Alaska's own Governor Sarah Palin announced her resignation. Everyone we ran into who knew we were from Alaska asked us about Sarah. People everywhere are interested in her next move and want to know what we think of her as a governor. I'm very proud of Governor Palin, and I tell anyone who will listen about all the great things she's done for our state.
But now it's time to get back to play...er...I mean WORK!
In this photo, I've added detail to the headdress and the fans. I've also begun working in earnest on her face to make her happy and cute. I add layers and layers of brush strokes with small, splayed out brushes to give her a furry, soft look. It takes time, but it's well worth the effort.
