The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Watercolor Attempt # 17

I didn’t want to post this latest watercolor painting.

At all!

Except my husband reminded me that I should be posting my epic fails and disappointments alongside my successes, as part of my blogging experience.


And he’s right.

So here it is. The colors are blocky and the lines rigid. I splattered paint in areas I shouldn’t have. I didn’t capture the essence of wet in wet painting, which bleeds, disperses, and merges into a beauty all its own.

But that’s OK. Because this is life and there is beauty in the experience of creating.

And in between all my fix-it sessions, I  managed to finish a detailed, in-depth outline for book two in my Eden’s Gate series.
