I wasn’t going to post this painting. Yesterday was a rough one and sleep evaded me last night. I really struggled through my day. I must have created and destroyed this piece a dozen times. Objectivity is not my strong suit when I am physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted. But something told me to stop. Just stop.
Then I got an email from a friend who also happens to own one of my paintings. She was looking at the piece and saw it in a completely new way. Suddenly the ugly voice in my head was silenced. I remembered that I know what I am doing. Then I went back to my painting, snapped a photo and called it a day.
