I didn't believe this was one of those times. I still like the idea and may revisit it, but this painting could not be saved. Yesterday I took my gesso and covered the painting. As I watched the hours I labored over it vanish in white, there was disappointment in the wasted time, but also a sense of relief and empowerment. This painting did not represent my work and I made the right choice.
Stay tuned for my next painting. It will have more color ; )
