This decidedly pretty paint palette was my frustration tonight. While it was great to step away from my computer screen, its been awhile since I've painted and things just weren't going as I had hoped. Four hours later and I'm left with a painting that I'm planning to paint over white promptly tomorrow morning so I can start over. Today was a good reminder of the persistence that the creative process requires and learning to accept a creative experience as exploration, even if the end result isn't exactly what you wanted. I'll try again tomorrow!
