Some of you might agree that one of the most stressful things
about moving is finding a new hairdresser.
It can be a nightmare that comes back to haunt you
like my bad perm back in the day.
When she asked me to stand up and then only cut one side of my hair I knew I was in trouble.
The good news is that my roots aren't gray anymore:)
They're black, or dark brown. I should say 'they were' because I've already gone elsewhere
to fix the problem.
You KNOW it's bad when your husband notices!!!

Value being the very most important thing even if it's not as exciting as color.
When I'm having trouble with a painting it is usually with the value.
It's not quite as easy to spot on a canvas as it is on your head,
but a piece of red plexiglass to view the painting through
can work wonders to help you figure out the problem.
This is how a few of these value studies turned out in color:
Thanks for viewing my paintings. I welcome and appreciate your comments and questions.
