"Touche" (4-4-13 12413a) was just fussed today from an old photo, of which I have many other versions, both realistic and abstract. For all the fooling around with the original I did over the past two years, today was the first time I really noticed the relationship between the green blades and the reddish leaves, like a pair of fencers. (I've always cropped out those bright green blades before.) Now that it's all done (including very minor painting out of background distractions) I'm not as happy with it as I was. Story of my life. The same thing happens every morning once I finally have a dream poem posted to my other blog. More or less disappointment settles in. It's not often, to say the least, that I stay content with, much less actually happy about, a photo or poem. So why I do I continue with these efforts? Because it's the process that I find nurturing. Sharing? Well, that's just gravy. I also suspect that some part of me refuses to give up. Maybe the next pic or poem ...
