Apologies for the terrible photos - I hadn't planned to show them - they were just for me to see the work in progress (sometimes, I see things on photos I can't see by looking directly at the art work). This is the first time I've seen all three together and I think I should've just left the first one alone - they seem to have gotten progressively worse! Anyway, too late for that as these photos are all that show any of the versions ever existed!
Funny enough, one of my absolute favourite blogging artists, Sandra, had a similar tale of woe with an amazing piece she was working on recently. Looking at the snippets she showed on her blog, I couldn't see a single thing wrong with it but now I can totally appreciate, without wanting to get all arty pretentious about it, that no matter what anyone else thinks of a piece, it has to feel right to the artist and I just wasn't feeling it with this piece. I may try it again in the future or I may just right it off as a lesson learnt.
I really need some more rainy window photos to work from so if anyone has any they don't mind me working from, please let me know! The problem here is while we get loads of rain I need all the street lights and neon signs that the rain makes interesting and there's nowhere like that near me when I happen to have my camera!
In other news, my sister came to visit from England last weekend and we kept it country by going to see Don Williams in concert! The man's 70 and still sounds amazing. He didn't speak much but when he did, oh boy, he had the most wonderful deep, slow Southern drawl I ever heard-it was like melted chocolate! I could've just listened to him talk all night never mind sing!
I'm linking to Paint Party Friday where I hope everyone else has had a more productive week's painting than me!
