We all learn as much as we wish to and no more. We learn in different ways, sometimes by not learning…. My way is by trial and error, by groping, stumbling, questioning. - HENRY MILLER
Oh Henry. Yes and yes. Trial and error...stumbling. My methods exactly.
The month of extreme painting make-over, flip or flop (art edition) continues. In this piece I tackled two goals - to make-over an old painting AND to add a new twist. After a field trip to Blick and a basket of florescent paints, I was ready to roll.
But first, let's define a "failed" painting. It can mean a painting that is obviously ugly. Or a piece that just misses the mark. Or one that I particularly liked, but no one else did (a marketing fail). Or one that everyone else liked, but I couldn't stand. Or, finally, a painting that is of a certain age that no longer qualifies for competitions and no longer represents my style as an artist. Sheesh! That's a lot of fails!
