Since a couple people have asked in the comments I guess its time to clarify. The 14 lbs of wool I dyed are to sell at the Fiber Fair on the 16th of May. Its one of the ways I am manifesting money for the trip to TAOS. I think the most I have done in a day before was 9. This is doing it in one pound lots, so that is 14 different ones. Perhaps I shall take pictures of the dye studio to share or make a little movie. I have 7 more pounds of fiber to do so maybe I will do it then.

I worked on my portrait a little more and right now I am trying to decide if I should just gesso over the whole thing and start over again. I needed to fix the nose and when I made a new skin tone bland the color was not right. So I thought I will move on and fix it later. So I did the eyes and lips, and then hair and I guess it hasn't gotten any better. Then there is the thing its like the portrait is a person now, do I dare just wipe her out. I know its silly, but I think I will give her another try before I literally wipe her out. One of the techniques used it to use water soluble crayons as a next step and I may be able to fix her with that technique, we will see.

I was working on a portrait, too and mine was not coming out either. I need to take a class but just can't do it right now. I got so frustrated with not knowing what to do that I gave up. The picture is sitting in the studio with all kinds of weird things going on with it!! Maybe one of these days I'll figure it out.
