My Postcard from Paradise has taken me back to my art table today. Art is the only paradise I can cling to right now. Sometime I think life is not worth all the hassle one has to put up with, all the things that must be done, all the heavy loads to haul, but if I can lose myself for a few hours in art, then I am happy and come out feeling much better. So....now I feel better!
I was not happy with a small fence slat painting called Primitive Heart I did the first of February and it has been hanging around taunting me. So I did a renew.
It used to look like this.
I disliked her layered dress, it didn't look right. Her face was too fat (I don't use templates or stencils so I have to watch that!!) And her expression was dead. The whole thing was just blah!
This morning I worked it over, and this is the new Primitive Heart.
I changed the shape of her face, gave her more hair, lightened her eyes, lengthened her dress, gave it a little texture, textured the heart, and gave her a playful friend to hide under her skirt.
So...I was in paradise this morning lost in art.
