I suppose that I didn't need to confess my difficult day ... but reality is, bad painting days strike sometimes. I did know enough to quit ... when it was clear there was no fixing it that day.
And Monday and Tuesday were dedicated to doing stuff to help celebrate my daughter's birthday. Lots of labor of loves.

It's always fun to go down to the Art League... and I miss being there on a regular basis. Lots of great friends, great people there around every corner.
This afternoon, I painted, returning to "Tomatoes and Onions" with lots of fresh, new paint. It needed strengthening ... adding more drama to the paint surface and lights/shadows. Plus, I rethought the relationship between the front tomato and onion below. Much better.
