Last night I finished this new piece, titled "Shine." I like it so much because it took me out of my comfort zone. The body shape, the dress, the Marie Antoinette hair -- I have never made any of these things in this way before. Plus I incorporated oil pastels for the first time, and put some of my recent handwriting practice to use.
I am so pleased just for those reasons. The finished product seems secondary. Am I the only artist who's ever felt like that?
