When she stood still for a moment, she suddenly saw how unbalanced her life had become and she was finally able to hear her heart's whispered longing for change.
Finally, I have some art to show you!! And I decided that I'd enter her on the Illustration Friday website. This week's theme is "unbalanced."
Today, I finished two paintings, one of which I can't show you until it reaches the person I painted it for. I can hardly wait!!
And then this one. I notice that when I paint a painting with someone else in mind (like the one I can't show you yet), I put much more thinking into the process than usual. It's not that I try to anticipate if the other person will like it, but I think I am just aware that it's a special project and take much care with it.
So, after I was done with that painting, I wanted to paint one of my women fast, purely from an emotional place and I had fun! I had prepared a canvas with lots of texture (click on the photo to see it larger) and then worked with brushes, my brayer, fingers and paper towels. I looked as colorful as the canvas when I was done! I swear I am painting my soul when I do this - it's the oddest feeling.
I've been somewhat absent from my blog and yours as I am getting ready for a visit from my dad. I am hoping though to visit all of you as I find a few minutes here and there. I've missed you!!
P.S. Those of you who sent me an e-mail with your snail mail addresses - I'll mail something out very soon!! Fun, fun, fun!!!
