This piece has a story to tell.
Back in 2009, while going through some really awful health issues – I started this in graphite. The more I looked/worked on it, the less I liked it, so off into a corner she went.
Every once in a while I’d pull her out and try to get something done, but I just wasn’t happy with it. So, in a fit of creativity, I decided that pointillism would be the way to go.. who was I kidding!!
I started the mindless “dotting” and just kept going. Slowly but surely she started coming around and I could finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s been educating, fun, difficult and interesting.
