Lady in Red

Sometimes you work on a painting and just can't get one part "right."  That was the case with the Lady in Red's face.   I worked and worked on it and rather than overworking it (any more than I already had done), I decided to STOP!

I'm working on not being so negatively judgmental of my work.  I had the delightful experience of seeing an old friend - a lady who is now in her eighties - recently.  She has started painting flowers and is SOOOOO proud of them.  She doesn't apologize that they are not perfect, but enjoys the process of creating and sharing her creations with others!  Maybe there is a lesson there!
