... just do your best ....


here's the painted collage i did over the weekend.....
it's a 12 by 12 canvas ... with at least two other paintings underneath it ... somehow it was never quite right ... so i keep painting over it .... trying to do my best .... the good news? i'm done painting over it .... i've been particularly fond of these lollypop flowers lately .... and i've been spending a lot of time telling my children to just do their best .... hence, the kind words of wisdom ....

have you been doing your best lately?

I like your lollypop flowers too. Most of the time I try to do my best - sometimes I stumble tho.

cute!

i don't know how to measure best: could i be doing more? certainly. would it be quality? not so sure. i am aiming for best quality right now, so if the edits are slow, then so be it, i stick to less is more at the moment.

Really nice! That is what I love about canvas, you can always reuse it!

I have not been doing my best lately, I need to work on that!

I love your new painting. It's a good goal. I tend to convince myself that my best isn't good enough and I could have done better. But I need to be reminded that if I give my all then that is my best.

Thanks for stopping by my blog recently and commenting on my stupid irritating cards. lol Still haven't finished them. Moved on to other things until I'm ready to face them again. *sigh*
