30 Paintings in 30 Days. Day 4

"Polka Dot Glass and Apples"
8" x 8"
oil on panel
The other day I felt bad because the painting didn't work out the way I wanted it to be. I had to wipe it off after 3 hours of "fighting" it and as a result was very frustrated with the whole idea of making a painting every day.

A friend of mine told me not to be ashamed of unsuccessful paintings, after I had shared my despair with him, because it is a part of creative process. "Sometimes, he said, in a couple of weeks you'll return to those paintings and will realize that they are not as bad as you thought"... Ok, I'll do it. And the challenge is not called "Make 30 Perfect Paintings in 30 Days" after all...
