she remembers the sunsets
8"x10" Acrylic on Paper
Hello from a new land.
I seem to be going someplace, and the map is not clear. I know this painting was inspired by the colors turquoise and red. And the ideas of beach and portrait.
My Flying Girls have been continuing their journey for most of six months. Maybe longer. The format has allowed me to explore many things, both in meaning and in technique.
But other things seem to want to get out right now.
What a mystery.
Where do they come from? What makes them come when they do?
Sometimes I am amazed that something that did not exist yesterday is now a fully formed... something.
Is life like that too? Do things work under the surface unseen by us, only to pop up when they are ready and become real living (or seemingly living) things?
Let me tell you another thing that is new:
This is my 500th post! All those words! All those days! All those journeys! I just kept going step by step and then here I am, 500 posts later and I am in a totally different place than I was when I first started. Physically, mentally, creatively.
It kind of snuck up on me. I knew it was coming but it snuck up on me all the same.
Now here I am, and I am not quite sure where I am. Well. I'm RIGHT HERE, but what I mean is, I'm not quite sure what comes next.
So in honor of my befuddlement, I am offering a giveaway!
I don't know!
That's where you come in.
The Superfantabulous Inspire Me Winning Prompt Giveaway!
To enter the giveaway, leave a comment here on this post, and in your comment, leave a prompt for me to use to create a new painting. You can make it a quote or a word or phrase, another image, a challenge, a technique, a social issue or whatever you think might get those juices flowing. Use your creativity to stoke my creativity. Haha. This is a ridiculous giveaway, but it's mine and I choose to be ridiculous.
I will paint a picture from the winning prompt and you will receive a limited edition print of that painting.
Bonus points if your prompt helps me find the next direction for my work. (A surprise secret additional gift. [No I have no idea what that would be, either.])
Also leave your name and a way to get in contact with you, because otherwise, how do I get it to you?
I will keep this giveaway open until Midnight, New York time, Sunday, May 3.
Let the inspiration races begin!
