For Your Inspiration Friday


Do not go where the path may lead.  Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


All of life is a movement toward perfection.

Artwork (For Free)



This is a rather rigid crop of my New Year’s canvas.

Mother and Child.

Did I work on this all year last year?  Longer?  Not quite as long?

I don’t remember I began working on this iteration of this canvas, but I know there are several other finished paintings underneath it…I have been working on this canvas since 2014 in one way or another, no doubt about it.

The actual canvas measures: 24 inches by 30 inches.

She is a labor of love, definitely.

She is also available for free.

If you are in the St Louis, MO area, you can email me to arrange to pick her up.  If you are outside the area, you can email me so we can find out what it will cost to have her shipped to you.

There is also a story that goes with this canvas, but currently I am arguing for computer time with my cat–and she is winning, lest I lose everything.

**Edited January 11…

Ok, so, the cat is otherwise occupied for a few minutes–and ya’ll can just stop laughing that a five/six pound cat can bring my computering to a dead stop…I would rather give her the chair than her hit every button on my laptop trying it screw it up…because, yes, that is her intent if she fails to get her way…

Anyway…what I wanted to say about the painting in question.

I must have started playing with this canvas in 2014 at some point, maybe earlier, but probably not.  I don’t know.  I am sure I can go back through instagram and the blog files to look–I just don’t have the energy to do that.

This canvas has been many things, many times over.  Then I decided to work on my Wounded Mother Archetype and do a Mother/Child piece…actually, several of them…this is to date the largest one I have done.

It is for this reason that this particular canvas 1 needs a new home and 2 needs to be freely given…this is me, working through the miscarriages, especially the very last one.  So to say that this canvas is a labor of love would be an understatement.  It is full of glitters, several types of glitter…there’s quite a bit of the outer bits that aren’t shown in the picture, but nothing but color and glitter…

So, seriously, if you are interested in having her, please let me know.  Comment here or email me.
