☆ A Work in Progress Dusted Off

'DREAMER' work in progress shots

Back in February I shared with you a canvas that I had started, and almost finished.

I was totally enjoying the painting, I was in a zone, on a roll and then, then I just stopped.

There was just something about her, something wasn't right. I was bugging me and I couldn't finish her, she needed something, but I couldn't figure out what.

So I put her on a shelf. And every now and then I would look at her and sigh.

I knew I needed to finish her, but I couldn't figure out what she needed.

Then one day I looked at her - really looked again and dusted her off, I finally felt the need to finish.

A few days after I had dusted her off, a good friend of mine asked if I had ever finished her, that there was something about her that just spoke to her, and she'd like to buy it. 

And because it was her birthday later in the month, my friends and I decided that instead of a gift voucher that we would instead give her this painting

And maybe all she needed for me to finish her was to know that she was going to a good friend who would enjoy her as much as me.
