Hello creative friends. This week was a week to catch up on projects that have been long overdue to be completed. I started two painting 5-7 years ago and half way through completing them I became frustrated and was not happy with the way they were turning out, so I quit. All these years I have been debating on what to do with them - finish them or cover them up and reuse the canvases for something else. Well this weekend I decided to finish them and am very happy with how they turned out. Here are the two finished paintings.
I learned from finishing these paintings that you can not judge a painting, or a project, before it is finished and the details make all the difference. The first painting was mostly finished and all it really needed was detail work done. Once I completed the detail work, I loved it. The second one was not quite as far along, however I was able to finish it as well and love how it turned out. Have you ever had a project that you were not happy with, before it was finished, and was happy with how well it turned out once completed? I have been wanting to move on to other projects, but decided that until these two were finished, I was not going to start any new projects. How do you deal with unfinished project? Do you also limit yourself to how many you can have going on at once? I would love to hear what you think. Until next time, have a great week.
