Ganesha Heart

When sick, I started a day off with watercolors.
Gads I am rusty… Groans…
I’ve been painting with inks!
This is a mixture of ink and watercolor, an experiment,
actually mixing them together and it is a failed experiment… oddly brown skin!
And his head is too tiny for his body!
I believe in posting the failed pieces so you can see what I’m not happy with too.

Splashing splatter on this one made it look like Holi!

Things got better as the day wore on.

This life-sized batik was bought from a street vendor for Mitchell…
Not too long back he strung heart lights around him and I love it.
Makes me happy every time I see it!

  1. I share pieces I am not happy with either. This is partly because I believe in sharing the journey and my progress – which includes the learning outcomes of failure – and partly because tapping into the perspective of others is useful in cutting through the Inner Critic noise and seeing the positives among the elements that have not been as successful. So I am glad that you have the same philosophy because it allows me to comment about how pleasing I find all the curved lines of the composition, which complement the sweep of Ganesha’s trunk perfectly, and how glorious the colours are.


I love hearing from visitors!
