And Now the Baby Has a Face!
I just returned from my trip to Les Cayes, Haiti, and I must say, it may end up informing some of my art in the near future. Or at least, I hope it will!
For the moment, I can say that the work I did on this piece was partially inspired by having spent time in the country. The people were so welcoming, friendly, and positive of spirit, that I decided to turn the corners of her mouth into more of a hopeful smile than a dismal frown.
You will also notice that the baby now has a face! I can't believe that came out as good as it did. I am not known for my knack of painting faces.
More on Haiti later... back to paint for now!
