#13, sadly, looks nothing like my friend, except that she is jolly — so I will spare you her name. In this photo she had on a funny hat of fake hair, and is much better looking, not a caricature of a hick with funny teeth! Oh well, you can’t win them all!
#14 is of my brother after he was moved into Avamere. He had esophageal cancer and died five months later. He still felt good enough to show his macabre sense of humor. It is an odd image, to be sure, but I will do more of him in vibrant, healthy stages of his life.
#15 and #16 are both of Mitchell. The first is not very good, as his ear is too close to his eyes and mouth — so I show the image for comparison. It was my second try, and so, I gave up! I feel pretty good about a side view. The last is of him next to Marguerite McLoughlin’s Lacquer Sewing Cabinet, done for another project yesterday but a face none-the-less.
Over halfway done and what I am feeling is more confidence in noses and ears and lips.
