I have finally finished off a piece that has been in my studio for a year. It has been moved from table to floor and back again. It has weighed very heavily on my mind. It was started in a workshop that I was very unprepared for. I struggled through the 4 days, shed a few tears and came home thinking that I would never paint again. Be careful what you think! I didn't paint for at least 6 months. This past month I decided that I needed to do something with that picture. As I was working on 'her' I was thinking about how she was like an 'albatross around my neck' and that I needed to bring her to some kind of closure in order to move on. Now that she is done I am wondering if perhaps I might have been the 'albatross' holding her back! Best wishes and happy creating!
