Well Behaved Sunny and Pleasant

The last day for my show is tomorrow! Here is one of the bigger pieces. It is 3 feet by 4 feet on wood panel. This painting is about being a lady and being pulled together and lovely and nice and delicate and well-behaved. There are bugs on the dresses that signify the difficulties that can come about when one spends all ones energy developing the outside.

I don't know about being well-behaved sunny and pleasant, but I spend too much time wishing I was more girly and pulled together. I want to be one of those people who just looks cool and effortlessly stylish. It is dumb feeling this way as it diminishes the qualities I have that are not superficial. Putting too much weight on the outside is a bit dangerous.

So glad I don't have to wear pantyhose. They are horrible.

Sneak Peek Two

Here is another piece o' art from the show. I painted this cake before. I painted it again because I think it is beautiful and artificial at the same time. This show is odd. There are paintings of people, food, animals, and bugs. Oh my!

I have lost the ability to judge my own work right now. I think I like them. Usually I like my work after I have stepped away from it for a good amount of time. I do hope people enjoy the show, but if they don't there isn't much I can do about it. Oh well. So I must get back to finishing up the little things. It'll be nice to be done.

Most of the work is posted on the La Luz de Jesus website.
