Last night I had some time to paint. I worked on painting a rose and I just was so not happy with it. Not a bit. So after about an hour I just wiped the entire thing. Then decided I needed to change direction completely. Glad I did, this morning was so much better. With painting it's such a concrete example of perseverance, same with all of life, but you notice it more dramatically with art. One step forward, two steps back. It's all okay, it's a part of the process. So important not to get discouraged and keep forging ahead. I am reassured by this "great pear."
This original 6"x6" oil painting is SOLD!
