"We are More Alike than Different" Part 2

No worries, no spoiler alerts needed.

Yes, I saw the new Star Wars movie this morning with my little guy and two of his buds (They've been best friends for over 12 year now...I love that!). I was doing fine through all the previews and then the "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away..." part started scrolling. Well, that was just the first time I teared up. I have so many fond memories of Star Wars from my childhood and I simply cannot help being a mush. Waiting in long lines to see the movies, mad dashes to purchase newly released action figures, recreating scenes from the movies and making up new ones of our own. I think I'll have to pull the box of action figures out of the closet and give them all a big hug today. Even Darth Vader. After all, he likely needs the biggest hug of all.

I also continued working on this painting. I love when a painting takes over and tells me what direction it wants to take.

I highlighted her forehead, nose, and chin.
I also whitened her eyes outside of her irises.

I painted another layer of a darker shade.

I painted the background to define her hair...
which made me quite certain that my painting
wants it to be a head covering rather than hair.

I painted an even darker layer.

And gave her eyes some color.
