Here's the next... I would have finished this yesterday, but unexpected events got in the way, and I spent the entire day out of the house.
Again, very, very small. I worked on this over three days. But in this picture, you can see what Zoe accomplished while I was finishing up details this morning. She's prolific, that girl is.
I have discovered a new art "game" that's good for how I feel about finished work. Last night, I was looking through my art books. (Coffee table type, mostly wildlife art.) All the paintings were spectacular, of course. But then.... I started looking at them as if *I* had painted them, to find what I would have been dissatisfied with if I'd done the work. And I found bits I'd have considered flaws had I been the artist. But when I was looking at it and admiring it as the actual artists work, I never saw the flaws. This is making me feel a bit better about never being completely happy with my paintings. Perhaps no one ever is.
