5PM: we came back for our walk & i too another look at grey 11, hanging on the west wall of our living room. i realized that the pics i posted of this painting on my grey page and my home page were too cool. the colors are, in person, a lot warmer. here's a more accurate version, which i just now substituted on those two pages.
10AM: this morning i'm un-stretching grey 11 so i can re-stretch a fresh canvas and start working on grey 13. i might be able get started today if i work quickly.
i'm still pondering the image, but it will definitely be a vermeer inspired face that fills the picture plane.
