Let it Rain . . .

“For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain.” ― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Another shot of Lady L after I have been adding and subtracting... there are several more close ups to follow this week.  I have begun adding back color and bringing up her presence in the painting.

We all seem to want to be noticed in life.  Some of us dress the part, some speak the part, some serve the part. There is not right and wrong in this... it is the part of you that seeks to stand out in life.  I spent most of my life wanting to stay hidden, reclusive and quiet.  I am still quiet, but being an artist in today's world of computers, you have to accept the marketing part that WHO you are as an artist has to be 'marketable'.  Writing these blogs and posts is always something prayed over and not taken lightly.  It truly pulls deeply from my heart. Lately I have had the overwhelming need to hide again.  This painting really shows what is playing in my life and my heart. 

" It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain." Isaiah 4:6
