Artwork Description

I am more a writer than a painter. Therefore, I thought it appropriate to paint a picture of what I feel like as a writer. To me, writing is like weaving. Only you have no pattern; you don't even have a loom. All you have are a bunch of different coloured strings attached to your fingers, and it's up to you to discard the ones you don't need, untangle the ones you decide to keep and somehow, although it's completely impossible, you managed to create a tapestry--or at least a small throw rug.

It's funny you should mention her eyes because I got a similar comment just recently at Elfwood--only that person liked that she wasn't looking at her hands, go figure.

Beautiful picture and lovely description...can tell you are a writer! Great use of color & texture to this piece, my only critique is that I feel like she should be looking at her weave...instead of off into the distance...perhaps she's thinking while she works...
