Day 52 "Tuscan Farmhouse2"

"Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death." Rosalind Russell
Here's the 16" x 12" version of the little sketches from yesterday and as usual I'm not completely satisfied with the end result. I may try it again with some changes to the middle field, but if I continue to mess with this one I will sacrifice the freshness of the strokes.

I'm hard to please but it's good to be a strong self critic when it comes to your own work. We all need to keep striving for that next best painting. Just don't let the self-critique become a noose around your creative neck so you become too paralyzed to try.
