But, in the meantime, I've recovered from a nasty head cold the past week and was forced to rest. Today I HAD to paint.
Our Moses Botkin Challenge for February was 'Striped Socks'. Since I was in California at sweet Urania's doing a project for her, I either had to beg off a month or figure something out. Decided that Liam's painting I had just started would qualify since he was in a striped onesy. It was not finished, but photoshop to the rescue. All I did was smooth out his skin tones, but it got me through another month. Now you'll have to wait and see if I squeek through March's challenge (due on March 15).

Don't know what I was thinking with his right foot, except that the before pic was what was really in the photo where his foot was not in the footie. I also think some of the white spread on the left hand edge could be knocked back a bit. And I see a few hard edges, but his little face looks pretty good for today's revision. Slideshow below. Man, it feels good to visit the Muse!
