I am in one of those dream states where you keep running faster and faster but can't get to where you are going!  Sorry I am two days late again!
I took a portrait class with Ann Feldman all day Friday.  She showed us her steps to painting a portrait.  It involved measuring for head height and width and then containing it all in a box and finding the center.
We all picked a different photo from the many she had brought.  I picked this man because of his attitude and Mona Lisa smirk!

my 8 x 10 painting on Gessobord.

The original photo

Enjoy Paint Party Friday.           I hope to visit you during the week.        Gloria
