There are artists who can paint reflective surfaces with their eyes closed. I am not one of them. The hands were as tricky. I had them so big (did you notice when you obsess with something, it tends to become magnified?) that, but for my teacher, Diane Tesler, the girl would have ended up with a giantess' hands! Someone in the class asked if she were my daughter. I told her that I didn't have an African-American child, but I would be proud to have a daughter like her.
