Still working on the portrait of my father. It has been a surprising hard process and I am not sure why. While I have never done a human face, I have done lots of dog portraits. I think the emotional component has to be getting in the way. The original had him in a coat, white shirt and tie. I always think of him in his blue-grey shirts so I put him in one. I think it looks like pajamas but that seems appropriate as well. Anyhow, I have now fused it and it is ready for thread painting. This is the in-process work.

its looking good. A new portrait form for yourself, and emotional content to boot -- it'll take time.
