I know it doesn't look like much more was done, but the small bits that were have taken a couple of hours. There are still more layers to go on top of her face as the shaded areas are quite dark.
Her hair has been started. Already there are 7 different colours worked into the spots I've started. At this point I've used sky blue, tuscan red, sand, ginger root, mineral orange, and two different browns. Much more to come! Even though this child is blond, her hair will contain a combination of many darker and varying colours other than "yellows." So far I've only used one yellow (sand)!
Today was the Christmas lunch for the elementary school children and my kids school. Hot turkey, potatos and gravy, vegetables and dessert for about 250 kids. I came home wearing as much as I served. One of the other volunteers asked me if I was having a plate myself and I told her, "No, I'd just lick my lunch from off my pants." Yes, it was that bad! I suppose it doesn't help that they have them sit on the floor to eat. Perhaps they should just feed them outside and let the mess freeze to be raked up afterwards;-)
Anyhow, the teachers left the parent volunteers to clean up the mess afterwards while they went on their lunch. I don't mind though, after all the seconds and thirds of cake we served the children....they'll be kept busy this afternoon until the sugar wears off and they crash. Then the tryptophan from the turkey will kick in and they'll all be sawing wood by the end of the day. Hehehehehe!
