Cattails at the Pond
Did you ever write an essay or make something that didn't seem right and you couldn't finish it but then one day you looked at it again and you appreciated it completely the way that it was? I struggled with this painting and didn't really like it and felt like I hadn't done what I wanted to do. I finally decided to frame it and put a final varnish on it anyway. I now enjoy this painting even though it might appear a bit unfinished and unrefined. I think it adds a touch of mystery and a lyrical quality. I'll share another one down the road. Have you had the same experience?
