Ohhhh... this is a commitment... so... I can't just slink off on a day where things were all a bit *&%&#@ so... what can I say today... I really don't feel inclined to make my blog toooo personal.. there's no need for that right now... I get a bit concerned with over-sharing and opening myself up to vulnerability... so I'll have to ease into that... and family stuff may always be out of bounds.. and that's fair enough. Some topics are totally ok for me to rant and rave about... and for the most part I aim for my blog to be more about the Art I guess. That's what I think today anyhow. I do like the option to change my mind. :)
Ok.. so here's some of what I've been doing today... including stuffing up a face and TRYING to get it back... making her mouth like 'the joker' at one point... at least Aura is happy, with her new cozy Hoodie for the winter. and I'll have another try at that face tomorrow.
at least Aura is happy.
Luckily all is not lost... because I'm really liking this one. These are a series of 3 paintings that are going in a local art show very soon... hence... stressy... get them finished feeling... is apparent and NOT HELPFUL REALLY.
those apps that make your paintings look more vibrant and warm are great.. but then you can't help but compare...
I'm keeping it short.. and snappy.. not very sweet today...
love Denise xo
p.s. ... here's a video of Esther Hicks... I was introduced to her and Jerry's work about 6 years ago... and listened to hours and hours of it back then... and...just now (6pm.. later in the day from that blog post) .. I listened in to this while making dinner... she's got lots of helpful stuff. xo

“There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.”
