Hope and Hopelessness Part Two

And that was what we in the business refer to as an freaking fabulous day in the studio.


"On the Duality of Hope and Hopelessness"

While not yet finished, this piece came a long way today, and is probably now 70% done. It feels good, really really good.


I know I'll sleep well tonight.

Thank you so much sweet birds, I felt so buoyed up by Hope today that my feet hardly touched the floor and I had to crank my easel up taller than ever. I'm taking a deep drink from this chalice, but I'll pass it on, so be ready to receive.

Miss Windy - I'm so glad to hear it, passing on the fullness of hope is SO my greatest ambition in this painting!

Avenue - I think it might be. Especially because I KNOW you understand this one...

Nancy - smooch!

She - we do need to talk, ring ring ok?

Do you sing while you paint?

The painting is beautiful. I think that I'd be tempted to flip it upside down depending on my mood.

I do sing, sometimes soft and almost under my breath, other times I belt it out, oblivious to the fact that the doors and walls of my studio are not that thick.
