Keep Looking

I shouldn't say this but she is all wrong, but I like her anyway. This is a little canvas--only 5x7 but I wanted to pull in the face really tight. I've been doing a ton of journal work but no canvas work. I have serious winter funk and getting myself beyond the journal and sketchbook seems to take enormous energy.
Creativity ebbs and flows, and mine seems to have frozen some. But I've been reading on my kindle which is such fun. My latest book is "The Help" which is wonderful. Lot of recommendations, but I get leery of books that are widely read and receive great critical acclaim. I tend to be disappointed. But The Help is right up there with Water for Elephants. Worth every bit of praise it gets.
