This was a lot of fun to do. The website "Artatomy" is good for someone like me who is challenged drawing faces and bodies. There are so many expressions, I'm like a kid in the candy store. It's also very educational if one does not know each and every facial muscle. More than anything I need to see the proportions and relationships of, for example, ears and eyes. If you are interested in exploring this website the URL is http://www.artnatomia.net/uk/index.html.

This is really very personal, but I guess the art work frees me of some of the pain. My son passed away February 28 after a long battle with cancer. To me it was much the same as the butterfly leaving its crysalis and flying free. I know many of us artists use our art work to express our innermost feelings.
I was playing with various gel mediums here including pumice. I still want to play with gel medium and add my own sand, but just had to have an excuse to buy some new art supplies. The shells are from our trip to Sanibel/Captiva Islands off the west coast of Florida.
