A Tale of Two Tails ♥ 4 re-imaginings

I like to say that I ‘reserve the right to alter my paintings’ while they are still with me. This is a reminder that distance allows for deeper insight. Working then stepping away, allows our subconscious to speak up and analyze the creation we just made.   I finished Precious Companion on Tuesday but woke Wednesday morning, way too early... obsessing.

Painting On Purpose AND Silent Story

One thing I’ve realized when I drip tidbits of Silent Story out is that MOST of us have a story like this… we’ve all felt betrayed or forgotten at one point or another.
