How to Ruin a Painting...

I started with the painting above,
which was actually fine.
Not shake the world outstanding.

So I decided to try
some crackle medium
and glaze over that.


Then I decided what the hay
I'll make her into a tomato girl...

But the tomato girl looks
like a tomato boy in drag, somehow.

This is the point when you abandon ship.
I must be disciplined and take comfort
in having learned something from the doing.

I couldn't help but giggle at your tomato boy in drag comment. Dix, I LOVE your tomato folks and I'm a big fan of all your paintings. Just bring the neckline up and give him a crew neck.
Or leave it and give him a boa. :> )
