At the suggestion of Lianne, and in the interests of determining from both sides of the coin what makes my art feel like mine, I have decided it might be interesting to look at the paintings I’ve done that don’t give me the good feelings when I look at them.
and the fact that those two butterflies were a total fluke}
What’s quite interesting to me here is that it’s helping me look with a more dispassionate eye at what works and what doesn’t. I can see where some paintings need more work, some need less, and some are just part of a style that I feel I’ve passed through now. Thanks to Lianne for suggesting this exercise; it’s definitely a way to look at your work that gives some clarity, sometimes in surprising ways. 🙂
