National Geo. probably 20 years ago. A young Afghanistan girl known as the Girl with the Green eyes. She wasn't even named at the time ... Just as everyone else was mesmerized I too couldn't stop looking at the photo. . . My rendition done about seven years ago, doesn't even begin to capture it... but I am going to try it again... and soon. ! If your interested to see her you can Google it, or click on the words above. National Geo.
After 20 years Steve McCurry the photographer found her again.. Her name is Sharbat Gula and no matter what your political views or thoughts about the Afghan people this reminds us that there are children suffering all over the world..

I know a lot of us read about the Supermoon last night.. This is what it looked like just as it started to rise above the trees across the lake.. I know I've lived a lot of moons, and have seen many unusual ones. but I'd never seen this ..It looked like the sun coming up at night.. I watched it and in just a few minutes later it was very bright white.. !!!! Well, just shows how we can always see and learn something new! So much better than a painting. !

She has very, very dark brown eyes ( and wanted that to come through... the wolf was finished just a few weeks ago and decided to post it today.. since the wolf is one of Tinas' favorite animals I thought posting them together was appropriate.
Both of course are pencil done on Bristol smooth paper, using Staedtler and Derwent drawing pencils and as always my trusty kneaded eraser.. Click on the photo to see a close up.
