My 'Apapane pair was giving me trouble today. Actually, I started painting this one on Thursday and I kept walking away from it, hoping the space would help me work it out. At one point I was ready to black out the whole painting, and almost did, until I looked into my sweet little 'Apapane's eyes and knew I couldn't be the one to separate them!
So I worked around the birds and made it happen. Now I am so glad I didn't giive up on this pair! They look so happy. That's just how it is sometimes. When the going gets tough, you gotta stick together, work out the rough spots and love each other "whether, whether... Times are good or bad, happy or sad!"
