I've been feeling a bit off the last couple days. And today when I first started painting I was not happy with how this painting was turning out. I was frustrated with myself and with the paint and I was filled with doubts. I'm not sure where these doubts are coming from. They had been good about staying away. But I know that doubts visit everyone. And what makes them so effective is the fact that they often show up without warning, when you least expect it.
In the end I like my painted butterfly. It's nowhere near perfect, but I like the essence of it. And, of course, the colors.
Our beautiful weather is still here. I hope you're having some of it, too. And having the time to enjoy it!
