140 lb Bockingford cold press watercolor paper
Worked on this on and off for 6 hours. The impulse is so strong to try to justify why it is not a masterpiece. A big part of me wants to try to explain what is wrong with the painting and/or what I could do better next time. I feel almost ashamed that I spent so much time working on something that didn't turn out perfect.
I can just hear my mother's voice asking "why did you waste your time on that?"
I have to remember that creating is not wasting time. Some days it is easier to remember that then others.
