day 8 - knowing when to quit

Knowing when to stop work on a piece is sometimes the harder decision than keeping on. I added very little to this page today, and am glad I was able to retain most of what I visualized it would be. There were a LOT more leaves on the original branch, but this is more eloquent.

Today's additions were a yellow ochre wash to define the contrast between branch and background. Then, I added the text in my own hand. Yesterday's font was way cool, but this is the reality of my handwriting.

The quotation is from the Pagan Serenity Prayer, and the piece is offered in support of all people in recovery.
