Reworked painting- photos of Elli-

The big -green painting, reworked-
Is it finished?
They just grow with me don't they?
Its called the 'daily walk'-
It's green because I love that particular range of greens,
and because green is about growth, potential- questions- what will this daily walk bring? where to? how?
I love questions, taking new paths, but I also love the regularity of the daily walks- Now my husband and I,
stroller free,
walk after dinner in the evening.
Its not as green ,but there is still that sense of anticipation...
what if?
So there it is ,
the :
'what if'?- tree'-

And a 'what-if'-mom-and child-'

The perhaps-finished painting-
And Elli, who is a lot more into red -

Somewhere between Athens, Amsterdam and Vancouver, her luggage got lost... And unfortunately my daughter is one of those gilrs who looove and get very attached to their clothes! ...
One of those things-

I used to be one of those clothes loving girls. Hoping her luggage gets there quickly.

love this painting and love how you revealed it slowly. it's so rich, it's glowing. the thing i really love about your blog is that your header is so big but i always forget, so whenever i click on your blog, i get this big wonderful surprise! i LOVE your header!
i think 'love' is the operative word here!
