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!
Kate <Breathing in. Breathing out.>
