So, first I laid out a couple of acrylic glazes... more just to experiment with the overlay of colors. then, not feeling inspired I applied the text from the old dictionary i found and set it aside. today i picked it up and suddenly decided i saw a forest and a girl returning home from the city to her magical forest lead by a golden bird. so, i drew on top of the paint with black ink and then brought the acrylics back to finish it. this might be inspired from living my adult life in los angeles and my childhood in new hampshire. in my mind there is always an inviting gentle forest waiting for me to return home.
