So we're on our 9th day of 31 paintings, and my little engine kind of ran out of steam. I went through the rough stages of this tree, got it to where I liked it, then took a break, came back and wondered what I had been thinking when I left it feeling optimistic.
The good news is I learned not to put a sharp angle in the bottom corner of a painting... and pulling out those little branches with my tiny brush is a b&*#@....
So I might have cheated before and found something I felt happier with at the moment, but I'm going to continue on my lesson; I am where I am and its okay as long as I'm learning from it. I really need this is my life right now. One day, one foot in front of the other, keep on keepin on!!
