Loosening Up

Argh!  Struggling with a painting is so frustrating.  Off and on for over a month, I've been working on an armadillo.  Today, sickness gave me an unexpected chunk of time to get in the studio.  I'm trying out a different color palette and am not happy with it at all.  It made me angry and then I just pouted for a while.  I felt like I wasted half the day.  Poor me.  The armadillo had to go sit in the corner, but I wasn't ready to give up yet. There was an old, gessoed over canvas sitting on the desk half covered with paper towels.  Dammit, I had to make something today.  I forced myself to work loosely and finish  fast.  So here's my childish response to an irritating morning.  I have to admit that I feel a lot better now.
