I considered redoing one of my paintings.
The first version of the painting was too textured
And didn’t sit quite right with me;
I remind myself that it’s important to know when to move on–
it’s important not to dwell or over-perfect.
Yes, the truth is in the details,
And yes, the artist is in the details.
But If I perfect the details then the work-
becomes a lie,
And the artist becomes a liar.
My work is raw,
My work is real.
My truth is in the details.
