This painting was a huge struggle for me and I think it was a metaphor for what I have been experiencing. It was a conflict alternating between beating it to death and trying to breathe life into it. I worked it, reworked it, tried again, and then did some more. So, at least for me, it's "Not Just a Pretty Painting," but a map of a battle and in it are a lot of lessons for me. It probably won't ever get framed and hang on someone's wall to bring them a reminder of beauty and joy, but I will keep it to remind myself of this amazing and cathartic day in the life of this daily painter.
This is as profound as I get.
