Months back I promised to show this painting completed. Thought it would be much sooner, but I admit that I got frustrated with it and had to leave it sit. Seemed that I boxed myself into a conundrum and had to let go of a few ideas and alter the colors some. At one point I didn't think I even wanted to go back to it, but over time the answers revealed themselves.
Sometimes the best thing to do for a painting that is causing you some grief, or not quite working, is to hang it on a wall for a while, until one day you walk past it and get an "a ha" moment. This painting and I got along a lot better in our last meeting:)
Sometimes art is less about what you give to it, than what you let go of.
