I painted and painted and painted. :) I'm not sure if she is finished. I think I'll probably do something more to the back of her which is pretty plain right now. It took me a while to decide if I liked her. I had to get my original vision out of my head so I could stop comparing her to that and see her for what she is.
This morning I looked at her in the bright snowy sunlight of the kitchen and saw her with fresh new eyes.
And fell in love.
Perhaps that is a lesson for other things in our lives.
