On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

I missed it!

This is my 702nd post - so I've officially missed the big 7-0-0. I was SO looking forward to it!

In my figure drawing class we're finally drawing facial features. I can't draw eyes, I can't draw a nose, I can't draw a mouth and I can't draw ears.

So.... when you put it all together for a homework assignment, what do you get? (I don't know either.)


  1. You get an interesting looking man ^^ I think you're doing the parts of the faces just nice, perhaps it's the proportion that needs a little fixing that all. But you're definitely heading there. :) Good job!

  2. My response to your "can't" is "yes, you can!" Is that supposed to be Obama because I do see a likeness, maybe it's the big ears? It is all about practice practice practice! Sit in front of the mirror and study your own facial features. Don't try to get a likeness - just understand how the shapes and forms work together. Note I didn't write nose, ears, eyes, because really all you're doing is depicting, shape, form, depth, and eventually, color. You're off to a good start!

  3. I can relate. My faces don't come out entirely balanced, but they are getting better. Your picture has a lot that is good about it. Just keep drawing.
