I woke up this morning with a fever...
A fever to paint!
Administration and other responsibilities
kept me away from my studio the last couple of days
and I could`t wait another moment.
I already had my canvas ready to go as I had prepared it last week.
This face needed to be seen.
She was NOT going to wait for another day,
or for a better time...
She didn`t care that it was Saturday and not my usual day to paint.
So, I just went for it and listened to the direction she was giving me.
Beverly is the one who taught me to ask her what I should do...
I`ve been trying to do that more.
To let go of the control
and just give into the direction the painting takes me.
This painting measures 18 by 24 inches.
She knows what she needs to do.
She`s not afraid anymore...
I think she`s just about finished...
I`m so glad I gave into the fever and painted today...
This face would not have been on this canvas if I had waited until Monday.
She summoned me to the canvas.
All I did was show up!
