I am hoping to show later a quick summary video of the Unforgettable Faces Project soon. You won't believe what has been done in the last 2-3 years and how much progress that I have made to be a better artist. I am getting excited to find out how much more I can learn. I am thinking it will be a gallery style video.
I find video a little (a lot) intimidating so I have to put on my big girl panties and go for it. I feel so wimpy, fragile and that does not feel good. I want to throw myself on the ground and stomp my feet, throw my arms about and scream I don't want to do it, but I have to grow up a bit and not do that,..... at least in public..... I need a cookie.
Anyway, this woman had the most amazing and contagious smile. While I was in the park the other day here in Banos, Tungurahua, Ecuador, I went a little click-aholic because there were just so many people with amazing faces and expressing so much.
For me, this gal has a prize winning smile. While I was painting, I had to smile the whole time. When I got her smile right, I was just about jumping for joy, because: just because it is a photo doesn't mean it will make a good painting or one small stroke of the brush can mess up the whole expression. so Yeah! Happy dance.
I wish to remind those people here in Ecuador who are looking at my pictures, if you recognize any of these faces, I would love to be able to give the paintings to the owner of the faces or to their families (for free). So please contact me if you know who a certain face is. I love giving back and letting the people know that they are Unforgettable. Thank you.
