Wonder and Dread - Part 2

Yesterday I did something I hadn't done before. I stood in front of a group of about sixty folks and talked for hours. I'm an introvert to my very core, but I had SUCH A GREAT TIME! I co-presented with a lovely teacher friend of mine and we shared information a wonderful group of special ed teachers. Most of you already know, but in case you don't, I'm a special ed teacher. I work with three and four-year-olds with disabilities and I love it.

And crazy me, I've already let the powers that be know that I want to present again. Yes, good times were had.

I finished my painting of my big guy when he was a little guy. He and his girlfriend gave me two big thumbs up. OK, they didn't actually do that because that would be goofy, but they said that they like it a lot.

"Wonder and Dread"

It's funny. I kept looking at the painting and looking at the painting.
The nose was absolutely, positively in the wrong spot.
So off it went! I love working with acrylics!

I redid his nose in the right spot. All that was
left was to add a bit of color to his hair.
