Painting of the Day- moment of grief

Funny story about this piece. I started it, and hated it- it was seriously ugly, wretched, not working (it looked totally different then). I put it up on my shelf and whined to my husband about how it wasn't working. A few days later I decided to take it in a new direction and paint over essentially everything. I asked my husband to get down "THE ugly painting" from the shelf for me. He looked very nervous and asked me to clarify. So honey you think alot of the paintings on the shelf are ugly ? HUH?

Sorry - that last question to your husband sounds suspiciously like the no-win question "Do these jeans make me look fat?"

He was justified in his worry :-)

Wow. I'm actually more impressed by the fact that your husband is wrapping! I'm in awe. Seriously. So about the painting--paint my grief. You're hired. I love the blue tone.

your wrapping husband is a WISE man. His hesitation to your request makes me laugh.
I'm glad he's wrapping and not rapping!

Your "shelf" is one thing that I love to stare at at your house, thinking wow, that one is great, oh look at that one too...Ugly is not one of the words I would use!
But don't you love "sensitive to our needs" husbands?
