STILL learning!! Yikes!
I spent so many years dedicated to reproducing exactly (or as near as we can get) a subject and after a few years I realized I was a nervous wreck! I applaud those of you out there who have the personality to sit patiently with yourself as you approach your work that way. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT!! BUT, for me it is the kiss of death for creativity! My version of it anyway...So...I quickly worked over the area that offended me so much and, as I usually do, I like this better!! Will it live a full life? I don't know...I took these pics in the dark so I will look at it again tomorrow with fresh eyes and see how I feel. But, regardless...I will feel better than looking at those tight (for me) little leaves that seemed much too stuck up for me! So, still learning...(which is ok unless it is the SAME lesson over and over) I gotta loosen up!! Hmmm...a reflection of where my life is?? I dunno...I kinda thought I was doing pretty good! HA
Enjoy my little life lesson if you can...As I keep reminding myself...this blog IS about my art AND my process...here's some for ya!! Tomorrow's another day!!
