If you think this is the same image as yesterday’s, look again (which officially makes yesterday’s image a WIP).
Stories are fluid. You think you know what happened, but then you find out more and your whole perspective changes.
Or maybe you discover the story you heard was wrong and you now have to make things right because you acted on inaccurate information.
Sometimes a story is so moving, so wondrous, that your life is forever changed just by hearing it.
Whatever you think about stories, never underestimate their power.
P.S. I actually created 10 more paintings today, or, more accurately, the first layer of 10 paintings. (The course I am taking stipulated spending only 20 seconds to create each background). I have 5 more days to complete those layers, and they are drying right now. But this old woman and the crows had me in their thrall. I spent a few hours making changes, especially after another crow landed on her other shoulder.
