Life is about Creating

Beginnings of The Curtsey. 

Beginnings of The Curtsey. 

“Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” ― George Bernard Shaw

Time to share a journey.. but just the basics over a few days.  It began with a drawing of my eldest granddaughter from two years ago... but I am not a figurative painter anymore... what was can no longer be and I am pushing to go a different direction and I know this painting will not reach it but it will be a stepping stone to where I need to go. Suddenly my tightness has jumped in overcharge. This may take months of painting several pieces to get where my heart is pulling me.  Discovery takes experimentation and I guess you go on this paintful journey with me.

The canvas has a sketch of her face and torso with her dress and she is in a curtsey.  The plan is to only represent a portion of her but I want the represented portion to be more abstract and I have already overshot that one.  Again it is the journey. 

“When I came to the spring today, I said, ‘Lord, God of my master Abraham, if you will, please grant success to the journey on which I have come. Genesis 24:42
