Remember last week when I showed you a painting of a chimpanzee I was working on? Well, I finished it. It sat out on a counter for several days. I told myself it was done, but I just couldn't bring myself to accept it. I realized I had to try again. Yesterday I created this:
I am so glad I tried again. This painting is much more my style and I am much happier with it. I feel like it reflects my style and my best work.
I tried to represent the joy of free-living chimpanzees. When I had finished my scene, I had quite a bit of empty space so I added a quote by Henry David Thorough.
Have you ever had to start over like that? Make something over even when others tell you it is good enough?
