Zinnia

It happens with a curious regularity: I make a bad painting, I wash it off, I make another painting on top. And that, the second, or even third, painting is good. This is one of those. I think it's curious because it proves the point that failure is just a part of the creative process. An integral part, at that. Would I have arrived at this image if there were not another, failed one, underneath it?

That's all for now. Maybe I will have time to pontificate more on this topic tomorrow. Meanwhile, I'd love to know what you think. How do you process your creative failures? How do they affect your outcome?

Until then,
