Another Do-Over

I was recently reminded by a nonfiction book called DO-OVER! by Robin Hemley, of how lucky we are to be able in most cases to paint over wood and canvas—to change things even after it has been in a show. Hemley apparently tried to do-over kindergarten and a few other life events, but it didn’t work out so well.

Of course, when we do-over a painting we always run the risk that we won’t improve it, but more and more it is important that I am happy about my work and confident that I have done my best. “In the Beginning” has been changed a little  before, so this is the “third times a charm” version.

Let’s hope so.  But it’s on wood, so there is always sandpaper.
