I Love You Anyway, or The Girl Makes Peace with Herself

I Love You Anyway, or The Girl Makes Peace with Herself
Golden Fluid Acrylic and Watercolor Pencil on Paper, 6"x9"

This is her! The Inspire Me Prompt winning prompt painting.

The winners (I told you it was two people's who got the wheels turning) are:

Lissa!
who said:

2 girls/women
representing the light and dark
for it resides in us all
back to back or attached in some way-maybe hugging the moon.

(Can't help it-for I am a Mermaid Moon Goddess-searching for her lost soul twin)

and

Leah!

Here's my prompt, based on my last blog post: A dialogue with your inner critic through art.

If you can see, Lissa started the thoughts going and when I read Leah's it seemed to give it context so in came my two strange circus girls. Or is it just one girl?

I really like this painting. I do not know if it will be a start of a new series, or a stand alone piece, but I don't think it needs to be set and defined so clearly.

By the way, I loved all of your ideas and many of them are starting other things bubbling, so we will have to see what happens. Sometime this week, I'd like to talk more about the prompts and all, but right now, I have to finish up and get the kids going.

Ladies, thank you all for your lovely prompts. And I do have more to say, I am just limited in time.

Lissa and Leah I will be getting in touch with you shortly to get your information.

Uh oh, kids are up. Must skedaddle.

I love that you did the Inspire me Prompt and those answers combined are perfect. Been doing a lot of searching inside myself lately, it is really cool how this online circle of friends synchronizes!

BTY: congratulations on your 500th post and the Artful Blogging Publication!

Oh I just love "The Girl Makes Peace With Herself" Just beautiful. I am thrilled that my prompt helped and it's no surprise to find out about my friend Leah-she is quite special:)
Can't wait to see what you will create next! Thanks so much!

Yay, I just adore this, Rowena!! I love the way their hearts are tied together. Makes me think of Frida Kahlo. And the colors are delicious! And I'm especially thrilled that you were able to use my prompt and that I've won a print too! Yay!! Thanks so much!
