The Grass is Always Greener

Desire, fuelled by imagination for something new or better draws our attention away from where we are now, to a place created within our mind, that we believe is better than where we currently are. This sense there is something better out there, can be unsettling. The green grass looks enticing, so even when she is offered a sweet treat, it is not enough. But what is there for the taking will melt away, as is the nature of opportunity. Imagined barriers hobble her, and she counts the days. This is a painting about what matters to you. What do you hope for.
