Don't You Hate It When You Muck It Up?

Hello.  Nice to see you again.

Man.  Oh Man.  Oh Man, Oh Diddily Man!

BuMpErS!    (That's what my four year old says when he is annoyed or frustrated!)

Why my sudden angst, you ask?

Well, you see, I needed to add some more paint to my little girl painting in order to complete her.  Now she has lost all her freshness, innocence and I think, general appeal.  I'm so disappointed in myself.  Particularly when you compare it to my "draft" version of the painting.   <SNIFF!>

The only thing I think I've improved on is the painting of her top.  I like the fact that it now has colour and the hint of movement with the ruffles.  That's it.  The rest of it is a mess.

Yes, I realise that I'm only learning and I can't expect everything I do to always work out perfectly.  Unfortunately, it doesn't make it any less frustrating.  Don't you just hate it when that happens?  (Obviously, you know my answer!)

Right.  Vent over.  Sorry about that.  It's time to move on.

I'll see you 'round with a hopefully more successful piece soon!

  1. Well hello there talented Kate. I have just spent the past half hour or so drifting from one incredible piece of art to another on your blog, gobsmacked by your talent and creativity. Did you say, you have only started in this field this year? Just a few short months ago? Well, I can't wait to hear you make music if that is what you can achieve after less than a twelve months in one artistic adventure. And your words too!! They are so engaging. Thanks so much for sharing sweet girl. I'm so excited to have another amazing mumma with an amazing talent to follow. Cx

  2. Thank you Carolyn for your lovely words. It is nice to know that someone out there actually smiles, rather than grimaces at my incredibly corny jokes! :-)

    However I must say YOU are the one with the uber talent - I'm just bumbling along.


Thank you very much for reading and taking the time to comment. I get so excited and love reading what you have to say!
