Friends and gossip

Marta took Dawn and I too have high tea at the Huntington Gardens for our Christmas gift. We had such a great time there. While we were having tea I noticed these two women in deep conversations. They had wonderful expressions as they were completely focused on each other and their conversation. I want to do a painting of them and the table etc. I was doing some sketching and playing with the angle of her face and trying to figure out how her glasses are sitting on her nose etc.

When I look at this picture it immediately reminds me of our great afternoon together before Christmas.

I changed the picture on the top of my blog. Its time. I designed a fun logo for my blog and never painted it, I am going to finish and post it soon. So what do you think of the mushrooms, think it implies that something funny is going on while being creative??

Great sketch!!! I love the mushrooms at the top of the page!!! I saw it as soon as I opened your blog...but you know how you see something and know something is different...but you just can't tell what it is? I like the change.
