Perfectionism nearly got the best of me while working on this new creation, called "Held." Remember when she looked like this? I got a lot of really wonderful positive feedback on that in-process photo . . . and nearly gave up and threw the whole thing away when I felt that I'd ruined her. I liked the lighter hair, and when I painted it over with brown, I thought that was the end.
But I didn't want an unfinished piece taunting me, so I sucked up my courage yesterday, let go of my perfectionistic expectations, and ended up with something that I'm really quite pleased with. This experience has definitely left me with something to remember the next time perfectionism strikes!
If you'd like to make a print of "Held" your own, they are available in my Etsy shop, here.
