This is not necessarily what I thought I was going to do yesterday when I showed her. I just knew there was more to be done.
I spent some time looking for words to add. And then I started getting a message about not forcing "words" just for the sake of words. She was telling me that when standing in shadows words are secrets for only those who join her behind the shadows.
I do really really like it and I don't know maybe what I did wasn't all that dramatic of a change. But I knew It wasn't finished even though I could have stopped. I was thinking maybe that was the point that I might sign it and then have that nagging question of "what's the point" that sometimes, a lot of times, nearly always, I am left with after a painting. That question is really beginning to annoy me. I thought maybe I need to push it a little more; go deeper; paint another level; add another layer of texture; paint a painting on top of a painting. Does any of this make any sense?
So I did. And I didn't get the "what's the point?" question. She is demur and intriguing and holding secrets behind shadows.
Is it what you expected?
