Imagine Possibilties

This is my 3rd girl drawing/painting and she tested me in many ways-my patience and my self confidence, just to name a few.  I found myself struggling with the dreaded perfectionism, a feature I knew I possessed, a little,  but I didn't realize it had such a grip on me.  I just couldn't get the hair to go the way I wanted it to go.  I was at my wits end!  I'm not exactly sure why but I thought of my sister Bonnie which led me to put a big flower on her head.  When I did that it seemed like her whole face just came alive.  The hair was no longer and issue.  I was now smiling instead of feeling deflated.

When we imagine the possibilities, not just in a painting but it life, then do something out of the ordinary it can totally change the whole frame of the situation we are in.


  1. A beautiful painting with a great story to boot! Thanks:D

  2. I really love this! It's unique, it's you, she's smiling, and the story of her creation is powerful. How cool to see you growing through the art you share with us! I'm so glad to be able to witness this. <3

  3. Beautiful work. I love the flower in the hair!

  4. Hey beautiful! I am so impressed with your paintings! This lady's face has a contemplative quality that I really like a lot...even the tiniest hint of sadness. That realness is what touches me...and I also adore that lovely flower! Perfect touch!
