Day 1: Beets

Next in my veggie series: beets, an old favorite. I’d ordered more canvases a week ago and they finally arrived. And the weather’s turned nasty. We actually had snow this morning! So I had no more excuses not to pick up my brushes again. I had to sit in front of the mirror, trying on facial expressions…

The temptation is to always try to make oneself look as pretty as possible. But think of it: where would actresses like Elizabeth Moss or Frances McDormand be if they’d refused to be shown as anything other than beautiful? I’m having a blast, practicing portraits and hands.

And — have you ever tried painting a beet? The colors are surprising.
