I can become distracted by all kinds of things. Etsy browsing... beautiful blogs... a gorgeous children's book.. I am also someone who is constantly thinking about new things to occupy my time with. Whether it be investigating for two hours who teaches the best Flamenco Class to where I would move if I left the bay area. In the wake of my distractions lie all of the little projects which never get quite completed. My daughter's alphabet monsters waiting to be hung in the play room - the sketches for paintings that will never see canvas - the little dress I started to pin that never rendezvoused with the sewing machine - the yards and yards of tulle for the colorful tutu that was never made - or those paintings that are near completion, but are missing something that I can't really identify.
My little Frida painting is one such painting.
She sits with her sister waiting for me to figure out exactly what should be said above their heads. "Love yourself" - "Love" - "I had a dream about you" - "Know yourself" ... I am not sure what it should say. Should I write it in English? Should I write it in Spanish? Should I just leave it blank?
Should I write something absurd? (Like - "She didn't know what to say." ) Too many questions... so there she waits for an answer... next to the other little paitings needing to be rescued.
What do you think I should do? Any ideas? Maybe I should sleep with her on my nightstand.and see what I dream about.
