Having one of those “worthless-as-an-artist” kind of nights. 

So I look at the pieces I just finished painting, but haven’t stretched yet. I remind myself that I painted those.

The voices though, the just keep responding back with “So? So what? That’s not that good - who are you trying to fool here?”

Steve (@floridabiking) asked me not to paint over this one, saying it’s just dark, and that dark is okay, that it’s not a bad thing.

So I didn’t paint over it, because he’s right - dark with only a bit of light is not a bad thing, it’s just dark… and dark still can be beautiful, too.
