Time will tell

I was working on this painting alongside with my other black and white one. Once again I was stuck so I put it on the side and this morning added my little sneaky snake, which has appeared numerous times in my work, either as a whole snake or peeking on the side of a painting or as a border. Don't ask me why but I like snakes, I'm terrified of mice and insects, but not snakes... so to continue, little snake wants me to trust him...and I want to, I really do...but you have to earn my trust, so time will tell. ok little snake??!! Meanwhile don't bite cause I like you a lot.

It's not all black and white

This weeks theme  for MMM is '' It's not all black and white''. Well this was quite a challenge for me, since my work is all about colour and lots of it!! Nothing in my house is white! not a single wall. Well Daisy is mostly white but even she has a patch of colour on her! lol.  I even dream in colour.....
As for black..ok I love black. I went through a period in my life that I only wore black. just black! My work had so much colour in it that I couldn't stand wearing it as well. Artists are so weird sometimes!!

This painting pretty much reflects how I was feeling this past week...a bit lost, confused, frustrated, angry! and all these emotions were making me feel even angrier for feeling this way!! you know what I mean? I hate finding myself in this position!!  when you're looking for answers or signs and others are not willing to give, because they are afraid to admit certain things. Ok, are you confused with what I'm saying? because I am too!! lol   see what I mean? Welcome to my world!!
At this point I'd like to say sorry to my daughter Alex for lashing out at her all week and being mean to her. What's strange though, is that she didn't react to all this in her usual way (being even  meaner)....hmmmm
Anyway, this is a brand new week, Spring is almost here, the almond trees are in bloom and the lemon trees are full of buds about to open and life brings us unexpected beautiful things and people in our lives. (How I wish I could be a writer....I envy people who can express themselves naturally and not struggle like I am right now)
Ok! back to the canvas now!!  With lots and lots of RED!! Have a great week my friend.
oopps almost forgot to post my painting!! ....ooohhh  spring....
