The one thing that I have always wanted to do is draw faces. As a child I drew and drew and never never liked any of them.  I even beat myself up way back then!  So 48 years later I have decided to give it a try. I think I was about 7 or 8 when I drew that first picture and I think it was a self portrait. I remember hating it---but Mama saved it so here it is. I have other things also that maybe one day I might post. They are very funny.  I always wanted to be an artist---always.  The second picture was drawn  looking at a picture of a little girl who was probably about 5 and when I drew her she aged about 10 years. I tried to keep her young but as I fiddled with her she just kept aging. So I just decided to put some lipstick on her.  I will work on it more---her eyes might be a bit big and mouth isn't quite right but anyway---I'll keep trying.
