I took time out from painting this week to enroll in the Affordable Healthcare Program and I would highly suggest anyone check into the program - the website works, the call center was helpful and starting next year I'll be saving a LOT of money that will buy me more paint among other things. For many full-time artists and all self-employed people, it's a godsend.
Anyway.... if you've been watching my work for a number of years, I have a preference for cutting off heads. The reason is I find the figure more interesting - it becomes a form. Body language takes over, identity is moot. Composition becomes the fun of it, color takes center stage. That's why I love it.
