|Is anything here worth saving?|
|Too Pink. Too Blue.|
I give a little landscape my usual try, standing and dancing to the music as I did before--and I end up wiping it out this morning. It's too pink. It's too blue. It's too clunky and totally lacks finesse. I think Van Gogh gave me a complex. I start again--limited palette--seated--part time; it's hard to adjust. I'm not comfortable. The easel ledge is too high and must be lowered. I need to sit in my roll around chair. Maybe then? I'll make my complaint next Tuesday. Going back to painting after knee surgery requires changes. Going back to painting in oils after looking at Van Gogh is like taking a tennis lesson. You can't serve worth a damn with all the new thoughts
going through your head.
