The daily double...
Some things are just easy, like this. I spent about an hour from start to finish, now think this is all she wrote, done. I think it is about being in the zone. Don't know how I got there, just really happy when it happens. And I got pretty much what I envisioned, though a couple of little accidents did something really special as I went along. Portraits of animals are just so engaging for me. I fall in love with every one of them, even the ones that don't succeed. Every one teaches me something valuable. Here I learned to look more deeply into my subject, but not complicate the work. Simple, but not flat. Sweet but not cute. Exaggerated in some places, understated in others, and that was pretty much about being on automatic pilot. HP guided my hand, for sure. Love it. Now. That could change after further perusal. I am nothing if not fickle.
