     As you can see on March 17th the hair is still wet! I might just take a dryer to it. The hair is painted on very thickly..so we'll see. I have made progress but there is still a lot to be done.  Among other things...her skin needs attention...I want to put leaves in her hair as Mary Cassatt did in her painting. I have already added my own touches. I can't imagine an artist who would not be tempted to do so. My intention is not to copy her painting exactly anyway so it is fun to create some changes. I have also been working on some other painting as the same time. I think when you go away from the painting and then come back you come back with a fresh view and fresh ideas of how you would like different parts of the painting to look. Stay tuned for more progress...
"Woman and Child" as it appears on "The Following" with Kevin Bacon.
Here you see Kevin Bacon as he hands Claire a cup of tea with my painting on the shelf in the background.
