Moth Mother: Phase Two

This one is slow to speak to me.  Perhaps I'm distracted, knowing it is most likely the last painting of the series.  Who knows?  But rather than rush it for the sake of being a consistent blogger, I've kept it on my easel where I see it every time I walk by.  Finally this morning, I turned it upside down (as often I have suggested my students do) and it was then I saw what needed to happen in the next step.

The creative process continues to amaze me.  Just when I think I understand it, it throws another mystery my way.

The weekend approaches.  Enjoy your Thursday.
