i hate this painting right now

UGH this painting SUCKS. the colors are all wrong. damn damn damn. i think i need to start with a different end of the spectrum...maybe more oranges and pinks and stuff...ugh i don't know. the clouds look like crap and everything is so muddy.

I think the clouds look great. :)

I can't remember how I stumbled across your blog -- I think I saw a piece of yours on Etsy -- but I'm hooked on your painting. It's really, really good. It's different, without being gimmicky. And I love how you take realism (people, cars, clouds) and arrange them into abstract concepts.

Keep it up... I know you'll get this painting back in order soon! :)

thank you whitney!!

Your painting doesn't "suck." A few color adjustments and you've got it. The concept and composition are wonderfully unique and intriguing! I suspect that your advanced painting skills will see you through this temporary crisis and you'll have a real masterpiece on your hands! Go for it.

Thanks so much for the kind comments, Julie! Well, we have something in common: math. I have an advanced degree in Earth Science - and math is the language of all science. Now I understand why I like the composition of your painting so much! - Kathy

Today is your lucky day.
It just happens that I found your blog and since you hate this painting, I'm willing to make the sacrifice of keeping* it for me.
I'll even pay the postage :-)

Kind regards,

LOL are too kind. If I still hate it when I'm done with it...we'll see. But probably not...thanks though!
