Go bold.

Sometimes as an artist, I don't know what I'm so afraid of. I was going to post a version of this image that was more toned down, without a layer that turns it more into a visual puzzle. I thought this here was a bit too much--but I preferred it anyway. What did I think was going to happen to me if I didn't go bold? 
I've been updating my website all day between other tasks, and the internet is slow. The kids were bickering, Josh was painting a bedroom, and the dishes were having families of their own in the sink. I felt a step behind all day. It's easy when life is like this to cower and hide, but look at Iona in this image, a tiny girl in a viscous, rocky landscape, powering forward head on into the blue unknown.
