why i love youtube ...

youtuber portraits ...

i've been doing some portraits lately ... many of them of people on youtube ... i need the practice ... plus, for a long time, i didn't put faces in my paintings ... or if i did, they had their eyes shut ... (it was a thing) ...

since i usually do first then think later ... my original plan was to do these portraits and then donate them to be auctioned ...

then i realized i can't just donate someone else's image like that ... i mean, i suppose i could, but it's just not nice for several different reasons ...

SO ...

instead, i'm still doing portraits for a while (at least until my new canvas gets here and i can build some frames) ... and will donate something else ...

so, what i love about youtube today is it let's me make mistakes in front so many people ... and realize that's ok ... and no one's perfect ...

ok, maybe ann spade is perfect ... but ... you know what i mean ...

xoxo

Mistakes? I did not see any mistakes. Loving your work! Hope you will not give up doing these portraits after your canvasses arrive.
