Today I dug through old paintings from three years ago and was appalled at my technique and choice of colors. I put an isolation coat on all of them in preparation for new gesso. Recycle! I think all my reading and watching free videos on line has had a good effect. I seldom get disgusted with a painting anymore. Lots of good advice is available free out there. Jerry's Artarama has good free videos. Wet Canvas lets one get questions answered from another artist.
I finished the all white flower arrangement for our daughter, Martha. That was hard to keep it from being boring. One needs a LITTLE color. Thank God for shadows, stamens and pistils.
