28 – Harriet Tubman

harriettubmanFor my last daily face, I decided to go back to the historical, where I started. I had hoped to work on making more pretty faces, but instead, life threw me a real curve ball and I didn’t have time or energy to do extras, and had to rely on my family for most of the modeling, total realism.
This has been a fun exercise,but I think that the painting a day exercise was more fun. More than once I did not paint something because I had to do a face instead.
Thanks everyone who followed me down this road this month, it has been an adventure!

    Dear Mimi, years ago, when I was teaching in an inner-city school in Dayton, Ohio, the seventh graders and I studied Harriet Tubman. She was an intrepid woman and you’ve captured that with your artistry. I think you probably share her intrepid qualities. Peace.
