When revising feels right

I'm still working on the painting I showed you last
night, but don't feel ready to share the changes.
This little painting from five years ago, caught
my eye today.  It's way better now, because I've
played with it a bit.

I think I will still work on the pie if I have time in
the next couple of days.  So far I've changed the
flowers, the jug, the pie and the plate -- a little.

So we'll see.  When I think of revising something
I think of my friend, the wonderful artist Nicki
Ault.  She frequently revises her work and shows
us the changes.

I'll see how I feel tomorrow and maybe I will
show you what's changed.  Here's the biggest
thing that's changed.   I like the painting.

Have a liking what you do day.
