I was scrolling through some old painting files the other day, looking for a specific early piece and I came across a painting I had created 8 years ago called Nourish (February 2007). And I was hit right across the heart!! I deeply FELT her. I don’t remember the exact moments of her creation, 8 years ago, but I did remember that she existed. And I love her pose.
Digging a bit more I realize I had re-created her 9 months later (Nourish 2, November 2007). Obviously the original intention whacked me across the heart back then, too… probably because I spent a lot of time in that pose 🙂
I instantly knew I had to recreate that feeling again, this week. SO I did! I have named her Star Light and I finished her yesterday (this original painting has sold, see details below). Funny, the mama who chose her sent me a message on Facebook to say she had to have the painting because whenever she saw the image she felt a ‘hit’ right in her heart. Amazing.
I have to do it again, too (til she’s out of my system), so I’m working on a larger, narrow, version today. Here is a sneak peek. It’s funny, because when I was at the craft store a week ago, I saw this canvas (sized 12×24”) and there again was that whack across the heart… I knew I had to create something on a canvas this size/shape. So I bought two 🙂 I will continue to share progress shots of this piece on Facebook and Instagram.
Star Light is this week’s new original mini painting ~ she is #110 in the Everyday Connection Collection and I have decided she will be the last painting in the ECC. That doesn’t mean that I’m done creating a new mini every week, they just won’t be a part of this collection. 110 paintings in one collection is good, I think 🙂 this is my largest collection ever.
Star Light, the original painting has SOLD, because a mama who saw her on Facebook (before she was completely done) asked to claim her. YOU can do this too… if you ever see a piece in process (I post on Facebook and Instagram) and feel a connection, don’t hesitate to ask if you can snag her. I’ll let you know if someone else has already done so, or if the piece is a commissioned piece.
First Come First Served is how it has to be with these mini original paintings 🙂
