Monday Missive~When It’s Done

Whenever I begin with that first brush stroke, that first bit of paint on canvas I always wonder as I progress how I will know when it’s done.  My good friend and partner, an artist of incredible proportions, told me that I would know.  He was right. I began painting my angel muse when I moved in to my new home two months ago (wow, two months ago today). I signed it last night, and knew it was time to stop, that this is how my muse wanted to remain; to be.

Were that other things in life as simple at figuring out that you’ve done enough, or needed to keep going at, keep striving for, trying for.

  1. Your posts have been so very refreshing, and when that first image from the previous post appeared (small in the email notification) I thought it was a photo of a crystal ornament. This is a POWERFUL image, and it represents how lovely your life has become — and reflects your own joy and happiness.

    It’s lovely to witness. Thank you for sharing your evolving story! I sign off with a smile on my face, thanks to you!

      Thanks so much, Lisa. First of all that you sign off with a smile on your face warms my heart. Then to know that what I feel carries through into my photos and now paintings strike awe into my being. I too feel that this angel painting is a powerful image and was meant to be created. Take care, and stay safe.

  4. I love it Suze! Powerful, yet unexpectedly so. I know what you mean about knowing when a painting is done.

  5. Art is wonderful therapy – revealing and healing and mysterious because it always knows what to do, even when the artist does not.

    Of course, once you sign it, it has to be done.

    It looks very nice.
