Miss M at first thought the woman in the photo was a little angry, but then when I told her that this woman was beautiful and was smiling in greeting, she agreed that she was beautiful. She then said, "Her hair is beautiful, Nana. It's gray, but beautiful!" I had to agree with her. This is a face full of character and a certain charm. I'm not sure I captured that, but if you go to the original photo using the link above, I think you will be charmed as well.
Meanwhile, Miss M sat next to my computer sketching in her journal and made a self portrait while I was working. Here she is at work:
And here is her self portrait. Notice the ponytail off to the side. That is how I did her hair that morning.
Well, I am expecting Miss M again this morning. In fact, she will be here some time in the next half hour. I'm on my first mug of coffee and she and I will undoubtedly do some art, work some puzzles, and maybe snuggle together and watch a movie. I will take her to school around noon.
I hope to get a bit of time to do some art today and am hoping the same for you.
