I am…



For 30 years

I played a part.

I was a server and a bartender.

I was always pretending.

I was cheerful

and helpful

and comforting.

I knew everyone

and they all thought they knew me.

I am thankful those days are behind me.

I can take off that false-face.



I am not apparent.

I keep a lot of my thoughts and feelings

to myself.

I am a secret.

This is my piece for Inspiration Avenue.

Happy Easter



PS: She is in my shop :)

  11. I love this painting. I am always such a fan of black and white checks and diamonds ~ the background is so cool. But I love the woman with her mask and half-hidden behind the sunflower! The thought behind it is great ~ we can always choose what we show to others.

  12. That's a brilliant painting Lisa. The frame sets it off perfectly along with that dramatic background. Bet it sells real quick...

  22. Oh Lisa I hope you enjoyed a lovely weekend. Love this beautiful work!! Taking off that false face is a big step. I still work for authenticity. Sometimes I slip...because I still try to please people. It is a process.
    Love to you

  23. Hey Girlie! I loved doing " If I were... ! My bloggie friend Tara had it posted on her blog Paris Parfait. I thought it was so cool. Normally I don't do those, but this one is great. Feel FrEe t o use it and pass it on. I answered each one with the first answer that popped in my head. Have fun!

  24. This is so beautiful- I love everything about it- her expression, the pose and the mask, together it is outstanding!

  25. This painting is gorgeous. My favorite. I guess because it has so much meaning to you and to the viewer. Thanks for sharing so much of yourself. It's hard for me to share my real feelings too.
    It takes a lot of courage. It's not easy. So good for you.
