The Good, The Bad, and The UGLY!

Not one of my prouder moments, painting #23 is the result of a busy day yesterday.  I usually get my posts completed before the end of the day.....that didn't happen.  The paint brush didn't even touch the paper until sometime around 7:30 p.m.  In my attempt to go simple I ended up going horribly wrong with every aspect of this painting.  It had potential in the beginning if I had spent more time and put more thought into it.  The color choices were poor and the brushstrokes were forced.

Well, no need to beat a dead horse, right?  I'll chalk this one up to lack of time and preparation.  This one doesn't deserve a caption or title and will most likely find a home in my reject closet or the trash bin.


  1. Gretchen No, do not throw in the trash, it's nice
    The title you used is the title of a film by Sergio Leone with Clint Eastwood :-))


  2. Funny you chose to paint Day, they only last a day anyway. I agree with Judy, not as bad as you think. We are our own worst critics.

  3. Well thank you Judy, Franz, and Carol. I was prepared for zero comments on this one, but you've all pleasantly surprised me. Although I still think it's ugly. You're right Carol, we are our own worst critics....very true.

  4. I've had ones I think are ugly so I paint again on the reverse of the paper!
    Having sad that, whilst not brilliant, its not so bad I would throw it.. just one of those days, hon xx

  5. Dear Gretchen,
    Please be kind to yourself. Always celebrate your any achievements. ALL experiments turn out precious experiences. Nothing is ugly.
    All the very best, Sadami
