Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me

I hate, hate, hate lips. And I take about three days to paint a single inch of facial skin, because I just repaint it a hundred bajillion and one times, and it doesn’t actually get any better with each try, but in the end I get so fed up with it, that I deem it done ‘for now’, but I know that I will never go back to touch it up, because I hate it.
So, I painted this:
For practice and improvement and get-over-it purposes. Not so sure that worked.
Now, after two days of not moving from my painting desk, I am going to go walk to the other end of town and treat myself to a big, fat, juicy, wonderful pita gyro.
PS: It’s been almost three years since I have first been introduced to Mel Carter’s wonderful ‘Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me’ song, and it still starts playing in my head every time I see a pair of shiny lips in an advertisement. Oi.
