Well I found my recipe. not sure what the big fuss was about anyway. I just mixed white with burnt siena and a touch of yellow. I’m still fussing too much when I start with a too dark layer. it’s hard to get it light enough. eyes are too large in the final. more realistic in the preliminary. What a gorgeous day today. P came home early and we had lunch outside on the deck in the sun. 85*… felt like summer. when we were cleaning up we talked future plans. god… I know I need a job… no, I want a job, but I’m afraid. afraid I can’t cut it. afraid of being turned down. I know I’m getting ahead of myself but… still, I need to try. going shopping tomorrow for some new clothes. that’ll help.
