This is not a detail. This is a close up and serious study of an ear done in oils. It's "pasty white" and the form needs perfecting, but I'll keep working on it over the weekend. I want Erin's ear to look like an ear that hears and not just an impressionistic suggestion that she has one.
Meanwhile lend an ear to a song written by Benny Cash and performed by Evil Twin playing a wonderfully bluesy guitar and singing in a dining room. The video only had 97 views on YouTube, but it deserves to be heard.
