I've decided to do another of my 'happy place' girls right away, since the first one helped get me out of my own headspace while painting her. this girl is meditating on affirmations to get her through her 'stuff'. I think a lot of us need minute-to-minute thinking these days, just to get by, and affirmations can help that process.
heres how she stands, unless I give her some last minute tending;
and heres how she got to that place

well. to be honest, I love this piece! I love her beginning, middle and end of her. I love the message most of all. "find your happy place". but, I dont think that I'm happy with having her in just one happy place, so I think this might have to be a 'happy place' series! I'm happy at my easel, I'm happy reading, or having tea... yeah, this may be a loose and free series of wonky but trying-to-be-happy girls!
I had 3 photo references I went by, creating a very loose pose.
and heres her history on the canvas;
