A Background Made Good

I have a ton of backgrounds lying around at any given time.

Pages smeared with random paint.  Pieces that were started with intention that I didn’t get to work on.  Random bits and pieces of who knows what glued onto a page.  Random globs of spackle and gel medium left over from other projects thrown down on whatever is handy.

So, this page began its life as a background piece culled together from random bits left over or not used from several other projects.

The other day, I had gone through my background pile looking for a certain something…and this one made it to the top of the pile and it sat there–and it kept looking at me…

And late one night, I grabbed a black stabilo marks all pencil and just … started to scribble…by the end of the night, I painted it out and left it to dry.

I find her very compelling for some reason, maybe because she just showed up for no good reason other than she felt like it.

The title of this piece…Trust The Growth…

A very timely message when she came to me…
