Last Tuesday, I started a new painting with a subject I haven't tackled before - flowers. There have been flowers in some of my landscapes, but until now I haven't focused specifically on them. One of my photographs has been whispering my name so I decided to risk failure and try it. Since Tuesday I have spent time almost everyday working on it. My reaction as I worked has gone from "it might have promise (last Tuesday in class), to "it's okay", to "oh no, it's horrible", and now it's back to "well, maybe it's not a total failure".
Peonies aren't easy. I'll let you know what my teacher thinks.
