I was inspired by the arrival of May. It is not only when things start to bloom, but the month of my birthday. And this year is special...the big 50! This painting could be of me in that field, contemplating my past and thinking, even dreaming, of the future. I do have regrets, I wish I had created more personal art. I always worked in the art field, but for a company of one sort or another. Everything had limitations and was creatively challenging. But losing my last gig was a blow, financially, and at a rough period in my life. I have been stumbling along since... back in school and trying to start up my art business. I have tried selling at a local shop, but not with much success. So, now I will try Etsy and maybe some other things. I am scared, but I have to try.
I have decided to clear out my stuff, including what is in my head, and try to focus and do what I want and need to do. I could never have children and sometimes, if I let myself go there, I can become quite sad. But God must have had other ideas for me, I just wish he'd give me a hint!
This is an acrylic with some paper flowers. The sides are painted all around with the scene. She is gathering a lovely bouquet to set her table for one with her finest china! Maybe she stopped to listen to the lovely bird melodies!
