As a perfectionist, I was want to fuss over everything until it looks just right, but the book I am reading says not to fuss because it makes the colors look yucky--which I am finding to be true. In an effort not to fuss, I decided that I am done with this one. Maybe I will do it again rather than fuss till it's just right.
My sister has an alter ego--a character that she made up to entertain the family with her improvisational shows. This is a common expression that "Petunia" makes and I thought it would be entertaining to do my first oil painting of this silly persona juxtaposing a fine art medium with something lighthearted. This way, I wouldn't feel badly if it turned out to be terrible. Thankfully, I like it! My family had a fun auction through our Facebook group and my mom won it for $17. Does that make me an official professional?
