Day 26

Revisiting a painting that I started a few months ago. I finally figured out what it's about. The girl (hmmmm, possibly me) is standing in the blindness of denial. She holds out a candle, the light of hope. Her face is going to be left unfinished....because of her flicker of hope she is emerging from the darkness-her blindness and is beginning to see. (I have goosebumps)
I think I'm going to spend time focusing on this painting this week. I want to see if any other images or emotions come out. I hope check in daily to show it's progress.
