i started this painting back in august or september. i can't even remember what the original painting started as or what i was trying to do, i remember not liking where it was going so i just kept adding more paint and eventually i got so frustrated with it that it went into a corner for a few months. occasionally it would catch my eye but i would quickly look away with a little "hmmmph". about a month ago it caught my eye again and this time i felt the urge to add a few quick touches to it, but then it when right back to its corner. i did this several times over the past month and now i reached a point where i can say that it is finished, and i think i actually like the end results.
this painting is going to a friend of mine for her Christmas present. she had come over and seen it hiding in its little corner awhile back and said she really liked it and my immediate response was " you can have it". i think i told her it would be her Christmas present, if not, she knows now!
