SOLD"Spring Meadows"- 24x24, oil on masonite
This is an older painting that I had put away for awhile because I wasn't happy with it. I took it out yesterday and tried to think about what I could do to salvage it. It needed a lot of work, which is why I consider it a fixer-upper.
Many artists will not admit it when they struggle with a painting. Many artists will not confess to the fact that they had to work at making a painting come together. Painting is hard, it's not easy. When I can take a failure and "rehab" it, I am happy. And I am not ashamed to admit it. Here is what it looked like before:
What a mess!
I think we learn a lot by re-thinking our failures. Although I would not consider the final painting a success by any stretch of the imagination, it still is an improvement upon what it was the first time around. Therefore, I know I have learned something and that makes me feel satisfied.
