Has this ever happened to you?


Okay all you artists out there...I'm wondering if this has ever happened to you. This painting was my trouble child. I have worked on her and worked on her and worked on her! Nothing seemed to just flow like normal, nothing worked, she wasn't please no matter what color the background was, no matter what color her hair or dress! She started out as a blonde with a white dress lol. No wings. No bird. Finally I gave in and listened to what she wanted...wings. She wanted wings. Well I guess we could all use a fashion angel I thought LOL and certainly some that I have seen and wondered why they didn't have one! So, she got wings, and not just any wings! Wings made from an article on fashion from a vintage home journal dated February 1911. What could have been more perfect? I certainly hope she works! Let me know your thoughts on her! I'm going to list her on ebay tonight. xo Michele

I can see that look in her eyes...she's satisfied with how she looks now. LOL I still think she'd look better as a redhead...but I'm biased...LOL and she thinks brunette is perfect. ;)
