I read something the other day about an artist I admire. She posted a photo of a painting on social media that she had reworked & turned into a new painting. I also do this & thought I might share with you a few pieces that got new life after a few months of sitting around in my studio. At the time I made them I was happy enough the with final result, but after looking at the canvases for a while they just didn't feel quite right.
As an artist I am still trying to find that groove in my style of painting. I approach each canvas with a fresh set of eyes & look forward to the path it will lead me. Some of you may have liked the before image better than my end result. That's fine, everyone has their own opinion & taste. I personally believe that for my work to be successful I have to love every piece I create. If I wouldn't hang it in my own space then how can I expect a potential customer to fall in love with it & begin an honest relationship with me as an artist.
