Didn't Like Him

I painted him awhile back but I wasn't happy with him. I like him better today. They say "never throw your paintings away" because you can always fix them or paint over them or maybe, just maybe when you pull it out from under the bed - you'll like it again.
Someone changed and it wasn't the painting.
I find myself dealing with people the same way sometimes. Too bad we can't tuck them under the bed for awhile. However, some of us have some excellent avoidance behaviours.
But after a little time, when you open up once again- you see them differently. Better.
I've learned to never throw someone away. We're all redeemable, unfinished.
You never know....maybe someone changed.

You are right about that sister! I learned that last year...the person that usually changes is yourself! I hope to be able to talk to you face to face about this one sometime...

Keep painting Peggy. You are so talented. You have a beautiful spirit! Thank-you for sharing!

Danielle xoxo

I love the sentiment in this post, and I absolutely adore the painting. It is stunning beyond words.

And I agree with Danielle, you are such a very talented artist. Truly.

I love this Peggy, not least your suggestion that it would sometimes be nice to tuck some people under the bed and get them out at a later date. So funny but so insightful too. And the turtle is gorgeous

This is spectacular!
the painting
and the words
the words and the image.
The turtle who carries us all on her back through the cosmos
the lovable and the unlovable
all colors all shapes all sizes.
and we shift
and see the world from a newer place.
I really
really really love this.
