A figure, a face is not so different from a landscape.  It’s another kind of terrain.  Looking at faces is like traveling through mental territory as you try to figure other people out, try to discern their thoughts.  To paint and draw faces is to make the journey with tools.  I record a face in brushstrokes or pencil lines.  I travel through the face as I might walk through a landscape. Painting provides this luxury, that you can think about mental places without using words.

So I switched from flowers a bit to draw faces — or to begin to draw faces.  But soon, it’s back to work I go with more flowers.  Still, one makes some tentative steps with faces.
