A while back I sorted through my stacks of bad paintings...and I discarded some really awful ones. I kept this one, however, despite the fact it is pretty bad. The composition is bad, the painting is too thin..there is a lot about it that just doesn't make it. But I kept it. I like how the minimal sense of it seemed to describe what I intended.
