........and ok, it actually turns out to be my student's project. But I say it counts. Because for one thing, this day ended up being so jam-packed I never did manage to find a long string of consecutive minutes in order to settle down for a little painting for myself as originally planned (oops). I did however teach, with one of my students finishing up this lovely portrait of herself today to take home....:
|A beautiful self portrait by one of my art students, completed just today.|
The self portrait was many sessions in the making, as we've been working on these over the course of a number of weeks. Under my guidance and supervision, my students followed my direction to work on their projects slowly and with care, while using a light touch and really thinking things through....:

And I think the results are just wonderful -- so proud of and pleased with my young students for the patience and perseverance they displayed throughout this project....
