Here are two friends---with great stylish hair--being blown in the autumn wind. I have painted a background and I might paint these two friends on the background today. I will post it if I do. I really don't know where these paintings will go. I am not sure if I can put them up for sale because they are similar to Paulette Insall's. I love hers but I don't want to infringe upon her look. Mine would be different but conceptually the same. I am hoping I can come up with a new concept for these faces that is just my own. There are SO many of these little portrait faces all over Etsy. Actually, they are pretty good sellers. I don't know yet. I will just keep painting them for now and see what happens. Paulette Insalls are great. I am thinking that I will letter directly on the canvas or transfer more of my calligraphy in the background. Then it would be different somewhat. I enjoy painting them so I guess it's about the journey and not the journey's end.

Dear Martha,
I love the girls you are painting. I looked at Paulette's site and I do believe that you have your own style. Your faces are softer and more girlish and the hair is more flowy. I like all the designs on the background and of course the lettering is distinctively you.
I definitely think you should sell them.
