Flying Girl Off the Path, or I May Wander But I Am Not Lost
Golden Fluid Acrylic on Watercolor Paper, 7"x10"
I worked on this painting all weekend. I had ideas in my head, but none of them came clear. Maybe I had too many ideas. I don't know, but the images did not come out. I painted over this about five times.
And it was so ugly. Oh my it was ugly.
That's when I realized I just had to let go and trust that the process would create something worthy.
The quote popped into my head.
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost.
It fit the painting. It fit the process. Perhaps it also fits my life, in this spot of life where I am trying to figure out how this all fits together.
In the end, I like the painting. I like the orange flowers and the wishes flying over the hills... I assume those wishes are leading her on to the clearer road, where the horizon can be seen, and the sky is boundless.
