Painting Bombed!

How tragic ...
Work and work and it just explodes - so sad 

But move on I must ....

 with a white paper bag
wait - white? :)


How colorful those whites can be!


another new 4"x4" present available next, plus more news soon ...
as always, thank you for staying tuned!

I have a bomb from almost a year ago... I have not been able to go back and address the tragedy. The crazy part was I felt as if this one was truly going to paint itself.


Love the bag.

We ALL bomb at times... congrats for the courage to share your failures as well as your successes. Your work is VERY COOL.. I love it ! very unique and creative ! Way to go, Karen

Aren't those bombs so tragic to live with! :) I have several tucked away in a closet that I too apparently think might somehow salvage themselves. Why can't we just throw them away!! :) Thanks Jennifer! :)

Hi Sandy, thank you for visiting my blog! Thank you also for your super generous compliments on my paintings!!

Karen, you crack me up - your art is awesome, girl. I second Sandy's comments - artists are so brave and some (you) are more courageous than most!!
My bombs are affectionately called 'opportunities for learning' and are sent to Mr. T (table saw) to inspire a more abstracted piece...see my latest post. Bwa-ha-ha-ha!
