Forgive Yourself

“Forgive Yourself” by Elizabeth Traub

“Forgive Yourself” is Art You Love by Elizabeth Traub.

I painted this piece on a very hot afternoon. My studio has an open ceiling. When the temperature was hitting one hundred degrees I kept at it.

It was perfect. Left to dry. I pulled out another canvas, and started priming the new canvas. Unknowingly I dripped white paint on this glorious piece. My perfection now flawed. Grrrrrr. Scrap it, paint over it.

Isn’t that how life is? Flawed. We cover it up with a multitude of things. Many, especially, in my experience, are lead to believe that flawed is not okay. So we hide it. Never forgiving ourselves for mistakes. Today, “Forgive Yourself”.

All Art You Love can be ordered  framed or unframed in a beautiful Gallery Wrapped Canvas Print.
