Her hair today again had a new shine. It was more red and made a different kind of frame around her face.“I’ll never finish this portrait”, he thought. He really needed the provision from this painting but he didn’t feel angry that the work was prolonging. Little Elizabeth, his daughter, brought light and warmth to the studio with her presence. One day her hair would have the color of gold, the other day the color of a young chestnut, or, like today, shine of bronze.He looked through the window and saw his wife planting purple flowers. It seemed to him like the grass around her was all blue. His heart sent colorful fireworks through his eyes.“Maybe it is time to paint what I feel, not what I see.” He thought.Then the inspiration came by itself, he didn’t have to call it.
Thank you Zoe for the Inspiration, your gentle guidance makes everything possible.
