I am finally starting to find my way with this piece...
It was the one I started last week, the one that I was desperate to paint but that felt physically painful. I haven't felt that in a long time and I found it perplexing in many ways. I wasn't sure how I was going to move forward tonight but I knew I didn't want to think about it too much.
There was a horizon line happening from her hair line and on it I saw buildings and it lead me in a new direction. I'm still so in love with buildings and I know I still want to go there more. I said I would this year. In fact, I've just signed up for Jeanne Oliver's new class on buildings... about painting your own city/town. And I can't wait to go there.
How wonderful to paint so gloriously big... about 500 times bigger than a teabag. We aren't finished yet, but almost and I can't wait to finish her. She's one of my pieces for the Survival and Triumph Auction in October. I still have a few pieces left to pull together... but getting there.
Happy Heart tonight.
