DESTROY!Sometimes - when I’m like 3 minutes from completing a painting I just get this urge to completely trash it. This time I just felt everything was “too pretty” (haha).It is a make or break procedure though, some of my best work rests on the remains of (partially) destroyed work… but you run the risk of just ending up with a smoking pile of trash……
I actually thought I’d be posting a picture of a finished work today - guess not…
