The rains have come to California. I'm staying in and enjoying the sound and being so thankful for the water which we need so much. I may just get to plant a spring garden after all. I almost gave up hope, and was making alternate plans for landscape. But now..... Hope is in my heart. Pansies, Johnny Jump Ups, Stocks, Alyssum - all those sweet things. Primroses. We'll soon be headed to the nurseries to see what we can find. I love those days.
But, in the meantime, I'm painting faces. These are three that I had sketched earlier, and am now getting around to throwing some paint on them. They are all in my journal, just practice.
First is Giovanni.
I expect to paint at least one more today and then sketch a few more for later paintings.
