Wednesday we made a day of buying eyeglass frames,
lunch out, and shopping in Sellwood.
Apparently in my mind today Mitchell has a round face! AAACK!
The Monkey Fist was yummy
*when is brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans ever NOT yummy?*
But wow the chicken curry salad was good — not great — it was way overpriced!
So I didn’t draw it!
Frames were much more exciting when I was in my 20’s and 30’s…
*we tried on every frame in the store and heather was a champ about our finicky tastes*
I finally found a few fun colors in a shape that fits my face
and they will arrive for sampling!
Mitchell likes interesting and colorful glasses and may have found winners!
I drew on location, and did the colorwork back at the studio.

That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
I struggle when choosing new frames. Nothing really seems to be just right. I love your on location art work!
I have green red and wild Carmen Miranda frames ordered to try on…. Thanks.
