"A Day of Reflections" Oil, 12" x 12"
Today was a frustrating day in my studio. Paint and scrape. Paint and scrape some more. Then walk away for awhile. Come back and look at the canvas with hopes the painting fairies have come and fixed the mess on the canvas. No such luck!
As artists, we have these "frustrating days" and they are not fun. However, I am sure they are an important part of the development of every artist. Perhaps, it is the belief that "without the lows, we have no highs"? Or just that "we learn from our mistakes"? Or maybe it is "we need to scrape off our canvas so we always have a nice pile of gray paint on our palette". Hmmm. Just not sure about his. Your thoughts? (The painting posted here is NOT from today ...)
