Then an impression of a face appeared on one corner. (In the bottom left hand corner...the canvas was turned upside down from the way you see it here.) What struck me was that the girl is looking over her shoulder at me, just like my sister, Jill, did in a dream I had last week. (You might remember she went to heaven in December. You can read about her here.)
The girl looked a little pallid so I added some warmer tones and adjusted the drawing a bit. Now she even looks like my sister to me...except the eyes...I'd like to make them blue like hers. We talked in my dream and she exuded a serene confidence that I found very settling. It was an amazing dream...a gift straight from God.
I may play with this image a bit more but then I think I'll set it aside for a while. It was good to push through the resistance I have to painting faces...like breaking through some sort of barrier. It helps that I've been inspired by the many artists participating in the 29 Faces Art Challenge.
Last fall I learned the value of committing to making and sharing art every day during Art Every Day Month. It is so much fun to embark on such a journey with a group. The support you receive from other bloggers is phenomenal!
