Today, as planned, I worked on the beach painting and FINALLY do not hate it. I just needed to approach it from another direction with a different mind set. I still am not sure if I like it 100% but for now, this is what I am happy with. Happy enough to share my progress and laugh at just how far I have come just from take three to take four. This was take three...Horrible. Just didn't look right or like water and I couldn't get that one wave to not look disastrous. Favorite part? There are still those who say OH its beautiful. Um its not...and there are those who are honest and say it doesn't look like water. Of course after awhile hearing all the negative still gets you aggravated and down because you've redid it three times already and it seems more and more apparent that you just cant do any better.
I am going to put it away for today so that I do not burn myself out, I am happy with today's progress and plan to move on to finishing the 7x14 replication of my table in the previous blog post.
