The woman was stunned...

She stood there afterwards...
very still....
Not afraid...
AU CONTRAIRE...
 comforted actually....
She had felt a presence...
It had happened in a moment of extreme frustration...
artistic blockage or something of the sort...
She'd been working on this same wretched canvas forever...
It happened like that sometimes...
The simplest thing could become tedious, arduous,,,impossible really...
while utter complexity and ambiguity could just invite her in from the cold...
as if she's known them forever...
Was it HER ?
Or...
 Was it ART ?
This irony ?
In any case, she'd been painting and re-painting this woman's face...
And no matter what she did,,,,,she just could not get it right....
And then she felt something beside her...
Actually CLOSER than just "beside her"...
almost IN her...
And then,,,,,,
just like that,
the impossible face was done !!
Angelic,,,this face...
Hmmmm....
