This is an in-progress shot from a painting I finished on Friday. It's not complete in this photo. There's not much to say other than I really enjoyed every minute of this piece. Every minute. Just thinking about it kind of chokes me up. Because of all the things I ever wanted to do in my whole life - this is it. It turned out like I was hoping it would and that is rare. And I'm so grateful for that feeling - that I could cry. Really, really happy. And so grateful.
His name is Paul. I'm not sure if that's what the painting will be titled, but the bear's name is Paul (if you were wondering). That sounds weird, I know. But, it is just what felt right.
Today: I'm hoping that I can find that feeling again. There's nothing like it.
