I thought it would be a good idea to practice faces. I am not really good yet at the noses….or lips….or eyes….lol I am pretty sure that covers most of the face! I don’t want all of the people I paint to be faceless. So I turned to my art journal and started doodling. Some features up close. Some in a small face. Some in a larger face. I have found it is pretty hard to capture any type of real expression in a small face. I think that means I need to practice more!!
As I was doodling I was thinking about faces, about facing things, and it morphed into facing your future. Everyone has things in their future – things looming ahead – that bring them angst and anxiety. Sometimes it is about a change that is coming. Sometimes it is because we long for change. But whatever looms ahead I have learned is best handled by walking straight into it – boldly facing what is coming your way. We can get through anything – the hardest part is really just taking the steps to get started. So go – go boldly face your own future. You can do it!!
