The fun of reworking

If you're not already a devoted fan of Mitchell Johnson,
and you're an artist -- it would definitely help your 
ability to allow yourself to revise your work if you 
did look up Johnson's work.  He does delightful videos
where he comes up to one of his paintings on a wall
(sometimes a framed painting), and just starts painting.

The painting I'm showing you today wasn't working for me,
and I've looked at it, and changed this and that on and off
this year.  Today I like it, so I'll share it in its current evolution.

So much fun.  And also one of my favourite places in
the world -- Nova Scotia

Have a loving your life day.
