“Perennial Hope” Progress Pictures

I just finished this 8×10″ painting, oil over acrylic. Unfortunately I didn’t take a lot of photos along the way, but here’s what I’ve got.

I call her “Perennial Hope”… partly because I finished her at a time when I have reason to feel hopeful after a long spell of depression…
The winds change once more, and I see that look on her face… it’s certainly not an inclination to jump up and down in enthusiasm or even really smile yet. But there is something there, that feeling of having survived, and being aware of the possibilities.
