I know it's probably my inexperience with the medium, but my painting turned out NOTHING like hers. It's not this fabulous ethereal piece... but I think it turned out wonderful nonetheless. Kevin fell in love with it immediately. He told me mine is infinitely better than what I was taking the practice from because it's mine.
And then he said some wonderful words: "Why don't you outline it like you did your last paintings? You know, to make it your own?"
I love this man.
My painting turned out to be a totally different piece than I expected, but it turned out that much better. What I figured was going to just be a practice sheet is something we want to get framed and put on our wall. I love how life turns out that way.
I feel like I've got my groove back. I'm so so so happy right now. I want to paint every day for the rest of my life.
