Over the 4th of July holiday, I painted (see painting here). I liked the outcome, with each part of the diamond representing fire, water, earth, and air. I even hung it on my wall! But every time I looked up at it over the past few months, I felt that it wasn’t finished.
The background was just too … blah.
A few weeks ago, I finally decided to do something about it. The end result is the picture in this post.
I like it so much more. It’s more colorful. More dynamic. More fun.
Updating this project was a good lesson. It’s a reminder that sometimes we can go back to those things that seem unfinished.
It’s not true with everything, but it is true with art.
I think it’s also true for forgiveness and reconnecting with old friends.
