Thank you so much for those paintings, and humor! Have I ever thanked you for inviting me to join this site? Well, I'm thanking you NOW! Wet Canvas does appear to be crumbling, indeed, and I frequent it less, and less as time goes on.

Gosh, I don't believe I have EVER pitched a piece of my art in my life. Some pieces go over better with judges than others, for sure, but I treat every piece of art as though it will hang in a place of prominence some day. My attitude is based upon a specific "discipline" I adopted, when I first began painting, and it has seemed to have paid off throughout the years. That discipline has prevented me from "pitching" any piece of art that I didn't feel was "working out", while I was working on it. If I hadn't set that discipline in place, I would NEVER have created any piece of art that I have created, perfectionist that I tend to be. Well.......I'm sorry, but I just never throw away ANY of my art. Oh, I have GIVEN some away, and offered a couple to charity auctions, but I have never thrown any piece of my art away, or put it aside while it was in progress.

Some of these are plain priceless.
How was it possible we've been here all the weeks without missing this thread?

Well, you may be a rarity, and it's also just a funny comic, meant to be exaggerated. ;)

I can relate to thinking what I'm going it good, then hating it the next day. I've destroyed a few, but not that many. And I've painted over a handful. I haven't used a blowtorch, but if I had access to one...

I saw that one before. I was thinking of using it, but I'm glad I didn't. Yours is a better resolution.

As for scrapping Art... I learned a lot about working in a very methodical and disciplined manner from the time I spent on the collages. Prior to that, I would often reach the "ugly stage" in a painting, and end up scrapping it. Out of the whole of my mixed-media pastel/acrylic figure paintings... and there are over 45 of them measuring 80" x 45"... I think I only scrapped one... and this wasn't intentional. There are probably about 5 that I don't like (although I thought they were OK at the time) I reworked this one for example:

20. Temptation-Before and After.jpg

The result was an improvement IMO. Interestingly enough, this painting that I reworked I had to rework again as this is the painting my studio partner vandalized. :mad:

After reworking the above painting, I decided to do the same to an even earlier work. Unfortunately, I absolutely ruined it. I still have pictures of the original painting and I don't know why I was so gung-ho to rework it. I never even photographed the reworked stage... I just tore the thing up and trashed it.
