Here is the painting I have been struggling with for weeks. Not my best, and not my favorite. I have re- painted this three or four times, and now I am just calling it quits. I wanted to do something dark, like night. I found this quote "Hope is faith holding it's hand out in the dark"....... I love it, I pictured a flower peeking out through the dark forest floor. Nothing was working so the next idea...... I thought about a butterfly, like a bit of color in a dark surrounding. Maybe..... I tried to work it without a girl.... with a girl. Girl stays- add a butterfly. Tried of trying. Sums up my summer. I am going to cover this in wax, its dark and dirty. My poor girl looks tired and ragged......looks like how I feel. Maybe if I finish this up and move on I will feel better :) UGH! Monday morning.
On a lighter note, I saw Eat, Pray Love, it was ok. I did not expect much. The movie never compares to the book. I was surprised of the change up in the stories. I liked it though.
