One more for the show...

After contributing so much time to the poppies, I just couldn't let this one go. A few days ago, I pulled it off the shelf. With fresh eyes it was easier for me to see what small changes I needed to make and did. Funny how just a few touches can make such a difference in a painting (or maybe it was the fresh look). I am much happier with it now and am reminding myself... the process is more important than the product and I am always learning. Thank you all for your kind comments and encouragement.

Congratulations :) It's so important not to completely give up on things that you lose patience with - if you come back to them later it's much easier to appreciate what's there. Of course, that doesn't help during that frustrating time in the middle!
