WIP, Progression

Working on a New Painting.
Not finished yet.
But it is coming along.
Not sure how she will turn out. 
I am not liking the flowers in the back...
Hmmmm Not sure...
Any way here is some of the progression shots

Sketching on the Canvas

Painted the face and some of the flowers.
Always starts with the face.
Soul of the painting

Glued some scrapbook paper for the scarf
Adding some texture.

This is where I am so far. Still have more to go.  I believe the flowers will go and I will do something else.
There will most likely be some words written.  They haven't come yet. I have to sit with it for a while.

Also did some more work on my Big painting.
See my prior post here from prior week to see what it looked like then.
This is one of my favorite things to do.
Just make a lot of marks on the canvas.
What was there before ???
Nothing, A Blank Canvas!
I find that so interesting. 
Were does it come from?
A mark! That is how it starts, Just one little mark.
You can not worry what it is just let it fly!!
Fascinating!

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”

She is beautiful. Yes, it all begins with a mark. I think I'm finally figuring out the intuitive side - lesrning to let go snd it begins.
