My word for 2015: emerge

Last year, I couldn’t really come up with a word that really captured my hopes for the year ahead.

my creature begins to emerge from her background..
really liking her face, it just needs a little more softening

Looking back, “growth” would have been perfect. There were so many challenging experiences, which taught me so much about myself.

her face is perfect ❤
now I need to calm down the background a little – it’s crazy!

I’m so much stronger and confident now. I’m better at speaking up for myself. I’m able to achieve more because I have more self discipline.

the background is coming along..
and I found out she’s actually a doe – the outlines of her legs was there all along!

2014 was a very inward kind of year. I needed to withdraw, experience and process because so much was going on (more about that later) So this year when I thought about my hopes and goals for the year ahead, the word “emerge” leapt to mind.

..a little more definition and tidying up and here she is, finished at last.  I love the way she just emerged from her background.

It’s time now for me to step forth again with newly gained wisdom and take on the world. I wanted to share the way my character emerged from the paint. She’s the perfect embodiment of what I wish for the coming year ❤ Hope you enjoyed! Cheers, jane xx
