what to keep
Scott Adams once said "Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep." Mistakes (in my eyes) are sometimes the very thing that give a painting the edge, gives it character, the point at which the viewer exclaims. The splash, the drip of paint, the rough edge, the under layers peeping through. Some are intentional, others a lovely mistake .

Well said! I love the ‘mistakes’ that turn into a happy surprise.
