The one that "got away"!

I often joke that painting is a bit like fishing! Every now and then a fish gets off the hook and gets away, so do paintings! I often take progress photos so I can track what I do and this photo is an example of one that "got away"! I was aiming for a different outcome and this is a pause on that trip. I stopped for a bit to ponder if I wanted to stop here but alas, I kept going. I often will look back at my photos later that day and think, gosh, maybe I should have stopped! I might have to bring this one back! You would be surprised at how many "get away"! I've learned to just STOP! But today I was on a mission!
