The Face of Grace

The canvas is 60x42" and only a few of the inches are showing here. They were the most challenging inches of all. To me, the subject looked happy, hopeful, calm and poised to move into the future. She's not afraid of looking you right in the eye, but it's with the twinkle of kindness. Sometimes during the process, I lost her altogether, sometimes she looked sad or sleepy or surprised. It's really remarkable how much a tiny line can influence a person's face. Tomorrow's post will show all the inches, all at the same time. Or just the torso.
