Guys, I fixed it!!!

comments: 33

I can't believe it worked! But I took your advice and a) walked away, b) took it down to the art supply store and showed those guys (and we all totally busted out laughing) and they helped me get some more paint colors and gave me advice, and then I c) turned it upside down, d) redid the whole face, and then e) redid half of it again. Don't get me wrong, it's not awesome, but I think she actually looks human! Progress! Thank you!

Tomorrow I'll upload the photos I took and we can all pee in our pants laughing. This is a good one.

I love painting!!! ;-)


How come you are so cool? I never would have thought to ask the art store people for help. I think I would have just cried and then hidden the painting under the bed. I love it when you share stories like this, because it's like "duh, ask someone for advice."

can't wait! peeing in pants is good for the soul!

what a funny succession of posts. Can't wait to see the finished painting. I promise not to laugh.

You are too funny. I can't wait to see the results.

i am certain it is beautiful, I love a saved painting, so much better than a perfect one!

So glad you fixed it. Can't wait to see the result!

can't wait babe !

Woohoo! :) You go girl! Can't wait to see it!
