You’ve probably figured out by now that I like my Angels! Deciding to experiment with a different medium I had drawn a small drawing and opted for Acrylics. Oh my goodness I love this medium, it’s so forgiving!
Alas, I was not! Over and over I painted because I couldn’t get what I wanted out of me. It took a year with many months in between of just looking at it on the easel but as it built up to the final stages I became more excited but also really miserable. I had got to the face, I couldn’t get it right…I have had no formal training and so found it hard to get any kind of semblance of a face. Eventually, I gave up and just drew in some thin lines in a child like way and painted over them. When It dried I was horrified! She now look like me! I was so angry! I had painted myself asleep in the forest. This was me when I escaped on those days when my body could not cope with my dis-ease.
