Surrender your dreams

Late yesterday afternoon I was in my studio feeling like I wanted to play a little.  I pulled out a pile of paper that I had used as a place to experiment different products.  I now use them as an inspirational starting point.  This background is  Dr. Martins Hydrus watercolors. As I was looking at it I saw this face peering thru.  She is a hidden visitor just waiting for me. 
I began to bring her to life then 2 more visitor showed themselves to me.  
The top one looks like a partial face with the eyes closed and the bottom left looks like a little girl. 
I'll be honest... this kind of stuff creeps me out a little, in a good way.
I decided to stop for the night and finish this in the morning.
Well...... my creative muse had other plans.  Needless to say, I couldn't sleep so I got out of bed and finished her in the wee hours of the morning.  I added details, toned down some of the brightness, finished the girl, then incorporated my latest favorite quote from Oprah.
She was DONE.  Now I can go to sleep.
I am grateful for divine guidance because 
when I follow I feel there is more depth to what I am creating.
