[I wanted to quickly thank every one for their gorgeous comments last week, they have been so lovely to read, but because the Mac House was the house of illness, I haven't managed to reply to many people. But they were so lovely + lifted my spirits when it all seemed too much. THANK YOU! xx]
I was inspired again by my 100 things challenge - this time I decided to paint 'cold embrace'.
I was really struggling last week, (aside from my family being sick around me), but also because like 'Mistress of the Ring' this painting was one I had to push through. I like the end result, but gee it was touch and go in the middle (+ I must admit, I almost binned it - and I have never done that before!)
|'COLD EMBACE - a mermaid and her doll'|
6' x 4' mixed media acrylic painting
Available FOR SALE here.
And after last week, I realised how far I have come. Not only in developing my own style, but in perseverance, and in dealing with my inner bitch. Because three years ago, this struggle would have crippled me + I would have just stopped.
And it would have taken me a month or a year, (or five) to return to my art.
And I wonder where you are in your own personal story? And are you stronger, more confident in yourself now than you where when you started? I would love to hear your story!
