I started this painting in July of last year, full of passion and hope. Unfortunlately like a dud firecracker, my passion fizzled out and I lost interest. And though I tried to fire it up it a few times over the past six months, I just couldn’t keep it lit.
At one point, I even considered throwing it out, or painting over it. But I refrained. I had a feeling that if I waited long enough, I’d fall in love again.
Yesterday, I was ready to tackle it again. I was just about to change the background to a deep red, when I heard in my mind’s ear… Purple!
So I changed the background from indigo to carbazole violet, and we were both happy again. (It’s a bit more purple in person than it is in this pic.)
I signed it and set us both free.
I’m so glad we ended on a good note!
