Heart to Heart

This is an older painting I'd done a few months ago but it was too literal 
to live. I saw it out of the corner of my eye on Saturday and thought 
what if I messed it up or just messed with it? I had already deemed it 
a lost cause so I wasn't attached . . . Sometimes it seems that playing 
a psychological mind game with myself is the solution, but I've been 
doing this now long enough to know that tomorrow, it won't be. I had 
done another like this earlier in the year and called it "Rescue" and 
wonder now if the title has evolved from a noun then to a verb now?

Il est bon parfois de revoir nos anciennes peintures... On s'aperçoit qu'elles ne sont pas aussi mauvaises que ça!
Celle-ci que vous nous montrez, je l'aime beaucoup. Il y a une belle harmonie de couleurs...

I like your turn of phrase "too literal to live". Funny.
This is very nice, Lorraine. I like the values in your lemons.

Merry Christmas!
