No need to go out today, so I got to spend extra time in the studio. I love seeing these little critters come to life on my canvas. I was thinking about the "dots" again, and it occurred to me that whenever I start adding the dots, it seems as though my subject begins to breathe. Maybe the dots remind me of air molecules floating around?
