Quick note on courage: I have none. Which is odd for a painter, given that the mere act of tossing some paint on a canvas with the intention of showing somebody else calls for gobs of the stuff.

Me? None. Not a drop. Thus my disinclination to mess with her mouth. I can tell you from experience that just the smallest change can totally mess the thing up, and despite summoning the full scope and extent of my considerable skills, I might just not get it back.
