Yes...finished no. 6...and can't wait to begin on no. 7. I wanted to paint a wolf in honour of my youngest daughter as she has always loved wolves and has been told several times that her eyes look like that of a wolf (a huge compliment for her). That beautiful, sparkling turquoise that seem to see right through you.
Wolf is a free spirit, perceptive and filled with integrity. As a teacher he demands respect, sincerity and excellence, advising us to move forward with confidence as we learn to trust our inner voice while being sensitive to others.
I'm really enjoying how these pieces work together and wonder what this series will turn into, and how they will all look together in a year. It's a good thing that I know how my process works...love the beginning, not so much the middle, and then a happy resolution in the end. I recently read that 'doubt is part of the creative process' (Danielle LaPorte) and I definitely agree.
Enjoyed the exhibit at Okotoks Art Gallery even more than I expected (it was fabulous!) and spent a lot of time in the studio this weekend. I believe that the body of work for the exhibit next month is ready and today I'll begin on two commissions...and stretch canvas for a third. Plus I have six other canvases in progress, the weekly 52 Weeks pieces...and several more months of work ahead of me. I am such a lucky girl.
