It is always a surprise to me how different a painting looks the next day. Sometimes a favorite suddenly looks out of whack, and I hurry to fix it, upset that I posted something so off. Thad real kicker though is how many I post thinking they are middling to bad only to realize the next day that I captured something alive and really lovely. I apparently need distance from the work and my intention for what it should look like to be able to see the work that it is.
