I spent the evening working on this painting.
You may remember her from a few weeks ago. I'm not sure that she's done yet... but at least we managed to agree on a way forward.
I'd started out with a vague idea of creating 'a beautiful woman', but it just wasn't coming together.
When I pulled the piece back out and looked at it again, I realised I was feeling completely uninspired by the 'beautiful woman' idea.
It had to be about something more - there had to be a story.
My painting's stories are always a bit vague - but there's a notion here about a circus performer. I wonder why she joined the circus? The bird is telling her something... but I'm not sure what yet.
I'll let you know if and when the answers come to me,
