I'm really excited about this painting for so many reasons. It may or may not be a great painting, but so many things came together. I've been injured and sidelined. Really stupid stuff and no glamour to it at all. The first injury was thought provoking - but the second - I honestly believe was a message to me to just stop - stop all extraneous things and pull into simplicity. For about a week, I did nothing but paint. It was about the only thing that I could do, so just sitting in the studio and painting, and focusing has been really wonderful and some really wonderful things have come from it. This painting and the acrylic paintings have taught me so much. I'm actually really excited again, excited to be painting and discovering and yes... moving forward. Love that!
