I have worked on another piece over the past week that did not work out. I became so tense working on it that when I hung it on my wall I did not even want to look at it. That is not the feeling art should convey. So I had to bite the bullet and put it in the reject pile.
Shalimar reminded me to enjoy the process. Today I went to my studio and had fun working on another portrait. The new piece is now on my wall and close to completion. As I view it from my"coffee chair" it makes me smile. Now that's more like it.
Remember to enjoy the journey.
Peace to you!
