That, in itself, sounds like 'underwater basket weaving'. I can just hear it, "How do you paint underwater?"

|At home, I added in the black of her hair and surrounding burka. She is nearly finished. After taking the picture, I went back to adjust values. There is a big light area in the lower right that should have been filled in.|
|Maybe her eyes are too big. And her chin too small. But her stare is indeed intense. Upon reflection, I may have made her look older, but she is one who is wise beyond her years. She has seen much pain and terror. Art can be that way, right?|

"The moment I let go of it was
The moment I got more than I could handle
The moment I jumped off of it was
The moment I touched down."
ALANIS MORISSETTE - THANK U LYRICS
This song started going through my head, not for Morisette's trip through India, but for how I woke up refreshed after letting the anger go from the previous day. Today was busier than most, but also more rewarding as I was all over California - inside, outside, on land and sea!
From a stranger's smile, to meeting new people, to swapping craft supplies, to helping kids with beads, to the majesty of whales, to dinner with my sweetie, I'd say this Earth Day filled me up completely.
Here I am at 2:30 a.m. finishing the post I made at 11:30 p.m. Somehow the picture wasn't even attached, so the post was simply the title of Gratitude...that's all for being wiped out for an amazing day.

I let the day pull me under.
Will complete the heart as soon as humanly possible.
We were with our friends yesterday after bowling and I had to start the art.
I was just using line again for composition and Mark Jones made me try a circular coaster to bring in something different. I might have made something different, but the heart creeped in again.
We went home and I added the watercolor, let it dry a bit, and posted it here.
This morning, I added more lines and circles on top of the existing composition. It's as finished as it will be.
