Hands II

Hey, Wow - this is my 100th posting on this blog - seems significant. Where's the confetti???

The second in my series of hands, and the second in 2B graphite on matboard. Much more complex arrangement of fingers, and of course size, but such a sweet captured moment. I'm considering doing the next one in color - maybe acrylics, maybe something a little more loose, I'm not sure.

I had to take a break from portraiture for a day or two - I'm on the verge of overworking it. One son is done (nice rhyme, eh?) the other is off just enough to make me unhappy, but I consulted with my DH and he's helping put me back on track, I think. I'd love to work on it tomorrow, but it is a homeschool day and we also have to take the dogs to the vet, so - maybe not. We could just have an art session after math and all of us get to paint to our hearts content! Who needs social studies, anyway??
