large abstract painting "Auspicious" is a perfect of example of "not falling in love too soon".   I struggled with this painting for several weeks knowing that in time I would win if I stayed the course.  It is a large canvas that was covered with so many beautiful colors, but I just could not pull it together. The problem was that I was not willing to let go of any of those areas.  Once I came to that point where I was willing to say "oh well", get a bit mad at it  and take that risk...then the magic occurred!

....and I fell in love with it once again!

Sometimes - a painting just does it's own thing. When the inner eye takes over... the results can be beyond our expectations. Kudos.
