This is an example of a painting that almost made it.
I like the work I did on the mouth, and the hair is okay, but the forehead is out of whack somehow and the eyes are too choppy.
Okay... so as I work on my "Vase and Cat" painting that I'm doing at the moment, I'm going to try and bring this thing to life a bit by finessing the eyes and by widening the painting. I like the joy she has, and I can't bring myself to let it go.
The other alternative is to just repaint it. I don't know... we'll see what happens.
ETC: And now later, I've reworked the eyes and cropped it, and for the card, I've added text for the first time.
Does it work? I'll find out if the market likes it.
