Back to normal: the best of the weekend


Now that I have expressed myself by putting smeary effects all over my portraits, I can settle down and show you the main work of the weekend. I believe I have five new people to add here, with a couple of redo's for library workers whose portraits I wasn't fully satisfied with. 

The one with all the birds, "Jennifer's Warblers", was the subject of some discussion here a few days ago, but this is a newer, far better version that I am finally satisfied with, even if Jennifer seems to remain... diffident. The other redo is of Judith, with a stoat, a portrait I really like, though maybe even better in its "special effects" version that I might have shown yesterday. 

New animals include a parakeet and an otter (with a library worker who wanted to be indirectly photographed, thus the back angle). 

Repeat animals with new people include a polar bear, a lion, and a moose. I was briefly annoyed by repeat animals at one point, but that reaction has passed. One never knows what will come out of them, and it's a different picture every time.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
