change is good.



sometimes things don't turn out the way i see them in my head.
when i first posted about this painting, i wasn't sure about the hair but had decided to keep working until something came to me.
yesterday i spent five hours on my studio floor cutting and pasting her wings.
after i cut and glued each wing i stopped and looked.
i considered just giving up and putting the canvas away with the rest of the half finished, not sure what to do with paintings.
but i kept cutting and gluing, thinking that after the wings were complete, i would have the answer to fixing this painting to make me happy.

as i was adding the last piece of the wing, i had a new vision of what she needed to look like.
she's finished.


i'm happy.

i will be bringing her along the the STJ Halloween Soiree
along with a few other angel pieces and Halloween creations.
if you're local, don't miss it!
