oil on linen
I'm having one of those days. No matter what I do with this painting it still looks like poop. The voice is screaming "failure!", my head hurts, it's cloudy and it's probably raining somewhere, whatever that means. Anyway, I'm letting it go with love before it goes through the window and me along with it.
Did you ever have an image in your head of what a piece would turn out to look like? I was beyond pumped about these little shoes and how I wanted them to look. Maybe I'll try them on canvas and see what happens. Problem is, once you create a puddle or a mess on board, there is no covering it. Each stroke must be deliberate and correct or you end up with this. Oh well.
Tomorrow will be better. Also, I must keep in mind, I could be suffering from a "cute" painting overdose. Bought more toys yesterday. Perhaps I'll give them a rest for a bit.
