Along The Ledge
I started a painting a few months back ( intending it for the ASA New Members show) that was probably too ambitious for me but tackled it anyway....it went horribly wrong. I tried to salvage it ( taking out, adding, painting over and changing colors) . There are a lot of aspects I love about this painting, but I'm thinking there are a million things wrong with it. The biggest problem I think is that it's way too busy and I don't know how to simplify it. I have TONS of texture , so I can't just paint over an area. I just can't pinpoint it! And it doesn't photograph right either...it's a lot more intense. Frustrating! Oh well, not every painting can be a masterpiece, lol. I'll live with it for awhile and see what comes of it..
