French Twist - by Deb Kirkeeide

I really, really love this one and am pretty pleased with it. I've lately become aware of something in the pattern of ups and downs in my painting. I'm finding that the subjects I choose to "second guess" what may be appealing for sales just don't work well for me. It's when I set that aside and paint what speaks to me that the paintings flow effortlessly. I beginning to believe that those seeming failures are pushing me to be true to my heart. I suppose that's really kind of a no brainer, huh?
So here she is, another fall goddess.
On another note, no matter what your political leanings are, the outcome of this election was a huge statement in our society's history. I knew the significance of it quite some time ago but as I watched the reaction to Obama's win it really hit me. It actually gave me hope.
