The writing around her is a quote from Anatole France and it says:
All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.
She has paper, molding paste, fabric, & rub on transfers amongst all the paint.
I started her last night after hearing the news that someone I love is making the decision to separate and most likely divorce. It's been a long, LONG struggle and I can totally relate to the toughness of this decision. It's heartbreaking but sometimes necessary to end a 'life' we've come to know in order to make way for the new life that's awaiting us.
The more I look at her, she could really represent so many things in a person's life. Quitting destructive behaviors such as drinking or smoking, leaving an unfulfilling job, moving away from home, ending a toxic friendship, etc.
Anyway, this is too deep for me. My head hurts ;)
p.s. Here's another one of Anatole's quotes which I think is fitting:
When a thing has been said and well, have no scruple. Take it and copy it.
And yes, I did, thanks Anatole!
