Another workout for my trusty shadow box.
I'm getting closer to thinking about the detail. But the darks need to be a little more crisp or sharper.
Did you ever have a piece where you just sit back and say to yourself. WHY? Why go on. That is exactly what happened to me with this piece. I lost interest. Don't get me wrong, I'm not feeling bad about my efforts here. It is just that this painting was like sitting through a movie that makes no sense. I could sit and analyze it but that is not what I really wanted to do. I just wanted to paint something else.
So the lesson of the day:
There is no art law that punishes you for not finishing...as long as you get back to work and start on another piece. Don't look back. I had to remind myself that not every piece needs to go to Ebay and sell. (a good lesson in itself) EBAY is not why I paint. The most important thing KEEP PAINTING....and while I am at it, be grateful.
My real lesson of the day: Gratitude moves all things forward.
