I painted this right at the end of my day today. The backlighting was in an interesting pattern, I thought, skimming across the hair between the ears like that, and I liked the way the light lit up the ears all pink, too. I also sold two small paintings I did in the Marine/Jurick workshop in March. All in all, a satisfying way to wind up the week. Tomorrow I go to Austin to pick up the three paintings I had in the Austin Pastel Society Exhibition. It's always good to see the other APS members. Even picking up paintings feels like a party with those folks.
The band we saw last night was The Belleville Outfit. Great fun Texas Swing done by six musicians who look about 14 years old. Have a good Saturday evening, ya'll!
