She's just not ready


Boy, sometimes I start out with what I 'think' is a soft, gentle look to a girl and then something subconsciously (?) bitter takes over and she develops her own personality. This one's an icy one for sure :)



He offered her his heart as others have before him, but she's just not ready to trust that it's for real....again.



Will he hurt her too? Is it even worth hangin' around to see?

Oh my goodness Darla! She is FABULOUS! Icy? Yes, indeed she does have an icy look to her eyes, but how INCREDIBLE that you can convey that through her eyes!

You are AMAZING!!!!

You my friend are the blending queen! I can't do that with acrylics. I love her eyes and your little story was fun to read too!
