This has been a very difficult journey for me hence the "title". My only sister past away suddenly at the age of 50 years old (only 4 years older than myself), she just callapsed and died when she went to pick up her youngest child aged 10 years old from school, a few months ago!

It has been extremely difficult for me to force myself to paint again but the love and encouragement from my dear flickr friends and family I have finally managed to complete a painting!

Bluebell Woodland was a suggestion from my dear flickr friend "Jane Small Fine Art" who is also a member of our group "Actual Progression and Phases of Pastel Drawings", I was thinking in a similar line and took up Jane's suggestion finding myself looking at photos of Bluebell woodland. Because I still wasn't ready I found myself emerged in the healing power of Bluebells which has many wonderful videos, it was so peaceful listening to the music and viewing the beautiful scenes "Springtime and Healing in Dorset's bluebell woodland" youtube and many others. Finally I started to paint!!!

Thank you to everyone for your support and guidance. I hope you have enjoyed the stages!

Here is a link to the slideshow that I have created for this drawing:
