|Untitled and Unloved by Gillian Cooper|
I finished this smallish piece a few weeks ago, but haven’t felt inspired to share it. There is something about it that just doesn’t work for me, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. I thought perhaps it was too simple, yet it has all the elements I have been working on in my Unsung Muses series; figure, waves, patterns, incomplete fragments, but somehow... somehow...

Does this happen in your work too? How often do you get to the end of a piece and discover you really don’t like it? One person looking over my shoulder at it said it was ‘cute’; which was a bit of a kiss of death for me! What do you do to recover your work at that point or do you just write it off to experience?
