In my sketches, I have been fascinated lately with how we show emotion on our face, and how that changes as we age. Children, in pictures, often look happy. Adults usually don’t. Have you noticed that? Sure, they might be smiling, but look at their eyes. The eyes usually hold something deeper. Masked satisfaction over awe on what curve balls life brings us. This fascinates me.
Well, we didn’t move. No move for us. We will be staying in the Pacific Northwest for an unknown amount of time. It could be the rest of the school year, and we try again in the spring, or if the kid thrives at school – we could be looking at another 4 years, minimum. Either way, right now, there is no move for us.
